Sława Harasymowicz’s practice includes drawing, site-responsive installation, moving image, photographic and print mediums. Her often episodic projects largely examine the relationship between archive, auto/biography and fiction.
A graduate of the Royal College of Art London (MA Communication Art and Design) and the Jagiellonian University (MA English Philology), she is in the process of completing a PhD at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London (Fine Art practice). Harasymowicz held solo exhibitions at the Freud Museum London, National Poetry Library Southbank Centre, London, Ethnographic Museum of Kraków Poland, and others. Work in progress includes a long-term project to be realised on the site of former concentration camp in Germany in autumn 2023.
Harasymowicz is the recipient of multiple Arts Council England Grants for the Arts, Artistic Scholarships from Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, Victoria and Albert Museum Illustration Awards, and The Arts Foundation Fellowship. Her prints are included in the V&A Prints Collection.
Originally from Kraków, Poland, she currently lives on the East Kent coast.
