Goshka Macuga

Goshka Macuga was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1967 and is a London-based artist. She came to London in 1989 to do her Foundation Course in Fine Art at the Sir John Cass University opposite the Whitechapel Gallery.
Macuga studied at Wojciech Gerson School of Art, Warsaw; Central Saint Martins School of Art, London; and Goldsmiths College, London. She is known for her sculptural installations of historic objects and documents; creating almost museological displays of her work. Macuga's approach is that of curatorial practice; creating art installations from ready made objects, archival material and other artists work. This method of art making gives new meaning to the items by creating different connections.
In 2003, she focused on the 19th century architect and collector Sir John Soane to recreate his picture room (Gasworks, London). In 2006, the Theosophical Society (1837-1907) and its co-founder Helena Blavatsky inspired her installation The Sleep of Ulro (The A Foundation, Liverpool). For her exhibition at the Tate, Objects in Relation, Macuga delved into the Tate Archive in order to focus in on Paul Nash and Unit One, a cross-disciplinary group of architects, painters and sculptors founded by Nash in 1933.
In 2008, Macuga was one of the 4 nominees for the Turner Prize. Since 1999 she has held 17 solo exhibitions worldwide, including the UK, Germany, Brazil (São Paulo Art Biennial) and Sweden.
