The subject of artistic research: HUMAN BEING: BURNING, MANEKINES, MARGINES, MEMORY AND LACK OF MEMORY, AMNESIA OR MANIPULATION. The extensive subject of memory poses the questions: where do I come from? Where am I going? Who am I? – Therefore, the problems of identity and meaning. It covers a spectrum of problems from history through philosophy and sociology to anthropology – it is always very current, it is at the center of debates and contemporary contemplation. The visual form, tangible or verbal – is one of the rare means of expressing traces left by various Forms of Remembrance – guarantees of any identity. This matter became the ground for which a new series of sculptures from ceramics and porcelain was born. After the period of introducing the “world upside down” during the opening of her doctoral studies in 2015, Sophie Maslowski now shows a series of sculptures on the subject of individual, collective, organic, cellular, atavistic memory … In recent years, she has had seven individual exhibitions in Poland and France, and participated in several dozen group exhibitions in Poland and abroad.
