Sława Harasymowicz uses diverse mediums including drawing, screen-printing, installation, photography, design, and translation. Her projects are often realised as narrative and site- responsive interventions posing questions around identity, historical catastrophe, memory and the politics of representation. Her solo shows have included the Freud Museum, London, and The Poetry Library, Southbank Centre, London; work in progress includes collaborations with BWA Tarnów in Poland, and Margate Museum with Turner Contemporary.
Harasymowicz is currently completing her Fine Art PhD research by practice at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. She studied at the Royal College of Art London (MA, Communication Art and Design, 2006), and Jagiellonian University, Kraków (MA English Philology, with thesis in literature on the theme of protest, 1997). Her work has featured in the Guardian, Penguin Books and BBC.co.uk, as well as Eye, Le Gun, Modern Poetry in Translation. Awards include the V&A Illustration Awards and the Arts Foundation Fellowship, with recent exhibition projects supported by The Arts Council England and The Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
