Małgorzata Turewicz-Lafranchi

Małgorzata Turewicz-Lafranchi was born in 1961 in Szczecin, Poland. From 1980 to 1885 she was studying in Academy of Art in Warsaw, 1985-1986 in Freie Hochschule für Geisteswissenschaft in Dornach, in Switzerland.

Steel wool, rubber tube, copper net, cable and aluminum wire are widely used in telecommunication, plumbing or cars, for Małgorzata Turewicz-Lafranchi are the essential sculpture material. With these utilitarian subproducts, she creates completely impractical objects, although their names may suggest a specific function, like badges embroidered with a telephone cable, net traps and stones.

The artistic work of Małgorzata Turewicz Lafranchi is a kind of phenomenon. Born and educated in Poland, but developing her almost entire artistic career in Switzerland, determined by thither point of reference, she combines, in an extraordinary way, both fields of experience and both views of art. She “exported” from Poland strong tradition of an avant-garde. By enriching it with a deep interest in mathematics and Swiss mentality she creates art which is extremely original and highly precise.
