Kamila Szczesna (b. 1974, Wroclaw, Poland)

As a human I want to know; as a human I am drawn to what I don’t know. I use my work as a tool to understand reality. I'm attracted to science because it promises the comfort of knowing. But can life be described solely by diagrams and equations? I am interested in the mystery and poetry of scientific approach. I search for contradicting answers and for paradoxes. I look for the places where knowledge reaches its limits and is replaced by feelings and intuition. I claim my “terra incognita” trying to accept uncertainty and confusion as a natural state of being human.

Education: Master's degree from Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland, 1999.


Kamila Szczesna was chosen as a Juried Winner in Round #3 of the 2013 ArtSlant Showcase series.
