Wanda Czełkowska

Wanda Czelkowska (born 1930) works in sculpture, drawing, installation and conceptual projects. She is a graduate of the Fine Arts Academy in Cracow. Through many years, she was a member of the Cracow Group.

The main medium in which Czelkowska works is sculpture. Nevertheless, for decades, she has been consequently breaking rules of the discipline, drawing inspiration from XXth-century art’s most important streams, such as neoprimitivism, expressionism and conceptualism. The issue that stays always present in her work is a relation between human, space and sculptural construction or installation.

Czelkowska’s works, slightly forgotten in recent years, were brought to broad public again by Broadway 1602 Gallery in May 2016. One sculpture and two drawings of her were called one of Frieze New York 2016 top highlighs by an art critic Andrew M. Goldstein.
