Paulina Semkowicz born in Kraków, Poland is currently based in Vienna. She studied painting and scenography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, Poland. Her practice approaches different artistic domains such as painting, installation and set design as she is deeply influenced by theatres’ scenery, a milieu in which she evolves as a scenography painter since a couple of years. In the exhibition « Bathing Suit & Surroundings », she mixes the media in greater dimensions to create an immersive atmosphere and an emotional context allowing one towards an elsewhere. According to Paulina Semkowicz, the objects have a spirit: they are esoteric characters putting in question objecthood and personhood as an authentic artistic concept. The Bathing Suit is the protagonist of the exhibition. Superstar of the summer, it can be hype and normcore, embracing the bodies and hiding what History has decided to forbid. As the bathing bodies lay in pleasure by relaxing into a flying and healing sensation, this piece of clothing is the only clue to give away a bit of the psyche. Multiple forms are running in the background highlighting the central subject: this small item of textile is evolving curiously in these Nature and Landscapes, echoing to the human oddity. Paulina Semkowicz’ practice and her peculiar aura tell us stories; she creates narratives rocked by her inner imagination. Situations are fantasies, mystical and surreal.

In conversation with Gala Knörr

Pablo's Birthday, New York

María Gracia de Pedro in conversation with Gala Knörr.



I met Gala Knörr for the first time when she was back to the roots in 2016, after being around for a while. After some years following her practice we sit down and spoke about her current status and future projects.


MG: For those that don’t know you (yet), how do you describe your practice?

GK: A journey that encompasses an obsession with youth culture and the internet, and now that I am more of an adult a jump towards our uncertain future, all coped and faced with humour and satire to remind us that this battle without a sense of collectivity we are bound to lose. All of that combined with the plastic skills of someone classically trained, that uses paint as if in an emergency, a starting point yet expanding into other media, looking to diversify their language and facilitate reflections on its content to a wider audience.


MG: You were born in the Basque Country, but your practice is so far from the traditional sculpture parameters used there. Do you feel that your body of work is connected with your education and the places where you have lived? 

GK: Yeah absolutely! I think the main reason for that disconnect with the very established Basque sculpture tradition is the fact that when I was sixteen, I moved to Surrey (England) where I finished High School, my experience there opened up a curiosity for things, that artistically it would have taken me years to discover if I hadn’t had a diverse international experience so young. I did not get into art school when I was eighteen, when you’re that age you think that if the institution does not want you maybe it’s not your space. At my first year at Richmond University in London, my studies focused on Political Science and Creative Writing, which definitely still have an impact on my work today. I was interested in becoming an artist but I conceived that vision through my pen, and a month after finishing my freshman year I understood within me that I really wanted to pursue an art education. The almost 5 years after that, I obtained my BFA at Parsons in Paris, traveled a little, had a year hiatus back home trying to figure things out. Soon after I would be moving back to London where I got my MA at Central Saint Martins, and worked tirelessly in galleries and museums as well as at my studio in East London for 5 more years. All the cities and places I have lived or studied at have had an impact on my growth as a person and as an artist, they almost have been growing parallelly, navigating through different cultures has definitely shaped me and my work, sharing one constant: change. Change keeps you learning and on your toes.

In conversation with Diana Policarpo

Lisbon, Portugal

María Gracia de Pedro in conversation with Diana Policarpo.


Last year I was in Lisbon for ARCOLisboa and one of the organized tours by the fair was to the group show 10 Anos/ 10 Artistas/ 10 Comissões by António Cachola Collection. Once there, I felt completely attracted by Diana Policarpo’s work “Sun in Cancer”, since that moment until today.

MG: I saw the work, I experimented it, but please give me more details about it. Where the voices were coming from and what did you want to transmit?

DP: That was the first of two projects dedicated and based on the work of Johanna M. Beyer (1888-1944), a German-American composer, as I spent more than four years investigating in her archive in New York. The musical work and poetry of Johanna was ignored in life and she was in fact, better known as an interpreter than as a composer, this is one of the main reasons why I wanted to discover more about her. My piece, in specific, it’s inspired in Beyer’s unfinished futuristic opera (Status Quo/ Music of the Spheres, 1938), that was lost for more than seventy years. 
After I found the scores and her letters in the archive, I looked at all these materials carefully and I created different elements, sculptural and aural to compose the installation. “Sun in Cancer” (2016) is a multi-channel sound installation piece composed with six audio channels and four seated sound/sculptures, steel scores and a large blue glass surface. Soon I have a commission for a new piece that will allow me to reproduce the stage work of the performance.
