Paulina Ołowska (born 1976)

Paulina Ołowska is a painter, photographer, and performance artist whose art explores the field of modernist utopias. Her research into the output of 20th-century artists, combined with her own creative activities, allow her to give fresh relevance to ideas unjustly regarded as failures or just plain old-fashioned. A characteristic theme in Ołowska’s work is her interest in female figures in art and the search for progenitors, hence her works devoted to Alina Szapocznikow and Zofia Stryjeńska, for example.
