SPRAWKA

Jolanta Sprawka was born in Poland during the time of communism in a family of regime opponents. Since childhood she tried to express herself through art. She first studied music and later English philology at the University of Warsaw. Sprawka left Poland at the time of a serious political crisis for Morocco which became her second country of adoption. There she had the opportunity to take training in dance, performance and painting. Immigration to Quebec allowed her to consolidate her knowledge of the different artistic expressions and to widen them to the visual arts, more particularly the installation, the performance and the painting and to follow specialized workshops with recognized Quebec artists in sculptures, installation and in performance. Her art language is based on the experiences gained from living in different cultures where the human aspect serves as a frame in the creative process. Artist did several solo and group exhibitions, participated in international land art projects, artist residencies in Canada, Greece and Mexico. Recently she finished an in-situ installation project for the art museum in Oaxaca, Mexico.
