Marzena Krzeminska

Poland, *1980

"...We have an innate capacity for remembering and imagining places. Perception, memory and imagination are in constant interaction; the domain of presence fuses into images of memory and fantasy. We keep constructing an immense city of evocation and remembrance, and all the cities we have visited are precincts in this metropolis of the mind…”

Juhani Pallasmaa

In 2006, Marzena received the Master of Arts degree at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław. Since 2007, she has been employed at the diploma-granting Art Glass Workshop ran by Professor Małgorzata Dajewska. Since 2016, she has been working as the Internationalization Commissioner at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław. In 2018, she received the Doctor of Arts degree at her alma mater.

Marzena insightfully looks at places, the surrounding reality, in her mind she draws vignettes from nature, snapshots from history, to reflect the mood, ambience and shapes of sceneries memorized. She uses glass as the dermis to find the process of the emergence of form. Marzena experiments and observes the behavior of glass during its shaping. Involving air and the gravity process, objects arise to reveal the subtleties of memorized places and events, in their details encouraging reflection and musings.

Her works have been exhibited internationally and can be found in many public and private collections around the world. She also won several Awards such as the „Talente 2015” in Munich, Germany, the „Silver Award” at the Toyama Intenational Glass Exhibition in Japan in 2018 or the 2022 Bullseye Glass Co. Artist Appreciation Award.
