Born in 1977 in Zawiercie (PL)
Lives and works in Brussels (BE)

After studying at Villa Arson in Nice (FR), Tatiana Wolska received the “Grand Prix du Salon de Montrouge” and exhibited in solo at Palais de Tokyo. Since then, she has been invited by numerous French and Belgian institutions and developed a multidisciplinary practice characterized by organic growth and proliferating shapes. An economy of means and simplicity of the gesture are the foundation of her sculptural work. Her slow and painstaking practice sublimates the simplicity of the materials—recycled waste materials, always—in order to bring out their poetry.
In the last few years, with installations at Frac Corse in Corte (FR), Villa Empain in Brussels (BE) or Frac Centre-Val de Loire in Orléans (FR), Tatiana Wolska has expended her reflection process towards makeshift shelters and nomadic dwellings.
A solo-show is currently dedicated to her at the Midlands Arts Centre in Birmingham (EN) and she is also part of the group exhibition «Rebel Garden», on the occasion of the Brugge Triënnale (BE) and of ARBOS, the outdoors sculpture exhibition in Tilburg (NL).


The essence of Tatiana Wolska playing with sculpture is recycling. She hardly ever buy things. And if she does – these are just elements indispensable for construction. Tatiana Wolska just plays with blocks. And the blocks she plays with might be plastic water bottles – thousands of which are used every day… Pieces of wood – industrial waste disposed of by companies… Old, used and worn-out mattresses.
There are so many objects around. They surround her on all sides driving her to distraction and confusing to such an extent that she totally lost interest in quest of different material, no matter how sophisticated and luring they might be.
Tatiana Wolska is a “junk” collector. She watches her collection without any concept or plan. Being deprived of imagination she starts to join those elements, bind them together – out of sheer curiosity. Sometimes the structure formed in this way grows powerful, becomes beyond her, overawes her… She likes it when those structures become strong and independent. They become themselves.
In fact there are plenty of things she could say – like how fascinated is she by the borderline between fine art and applied art – but what is simply the most important thing for her is everyone’s individual contact with works.
