Zuzanna Czebatul

Zuzanna Czebatul (born in 1986, Poland) lives and works in Berlin. She graduated from the Städelschule Frankfurt in 2013, and later attended the MFA Program at Hunter College, New York as Fulbright Fellow.

The artist operates mainly in the field of sculpture, creating pieces that blur the lines between commercial product, architectural relic, and artistic production. Her work investigates complex relationships between the viewer and the viewed. She produces her own materials and creates works that deal with different themes representing strength or weakness, depicted in their opposed forms and with a certain sense of humor and kitschy eroticism. Her installations appear in turns collapsed, destroyed, deflated, or fragmented, and question concepts such as monument, public edifice and symbolic architecture. Reality and artificiality appear in her work in a constant dialogue in which she exposes the fluidity or flexibility of politics, the art market, or the human body. Thus, her work often addresses power structures, ideologies and politics and asks the question: how do we want to live?

Zuzanna Czebatul is one of the winners of the Allegro Art Prize 2022. She received the Werkstattpreis 2022 - Kunststiftung Erich Hauser and the Hessische Kulturstiftung Travel Grant in 2020.

Czebatul has had solo exhibitions at Sans titre, Paris (2023); Kunsthal Thy, Stenbjerg (2023); Rosa Stern Space, Munich (2023); FKA SIX, Berlin (2022); Import Export, Warsaw (2022); M.1 Arthur Boskamp-Stiftung, Hohenlockstedt (2022); Kunstpalais Erlangen (2021); EXILE Gallery, Vienna (2022 & 2021); CAC Synagogue de Delme (2020); Sans titre, Paris (2020); GGM1 Municipal Gallery, Gdansk (2019); Futura, Prague (2018); CCA Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw (2017); 83 Pitt Street, New York (2017); Piktogram, Warsaw (2016); Gillmeier Rech, Berlin (2015); Bad Reputation, Los Angeles (2015) as well as at MINI/Goethe-Institut Ludlow 38, New York (2015).
