Katarzyna Mirczak

Katarzyna Mirczak Born in 1980 in Wałbrzych, Poland, she graduated from the Institute of Archeology at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. Mirczak has been working with objects and images found in archives of obscure, hardly accessible institutions, exploring the fields of science and medicine, violence and death, and introducing elements of foreign visual language into the realm of contemporary art – displaying objects in a disciplined, cold way, always against a neutral, white background, blurring the boundary between the genre of still life and scientific proofs, samples or evidence of crime. Her works have been exhibited at important exhibitions and fairs at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Kunsthalle Bratislava, at the Paris Photo, the AIPAD Photography Show in New York, at the Archeology of Photography Foundation and Krakow Photomonth.
