Zofia Skoroszewska is a Polish-born artist and body adornment designer.
She holds a BA from Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and an MA from the Royal College of Art, where she was awarded a distinction for her MA dissertation and a scholarship from The Behrens Foundation. Her final work at the RCA was awarded the Graham Hughes Award.
Her Fine Art and Textiles background informs her extensive interest in materiality and its influence on society and technology. Zofia’s practice explores the poetics of liminal space between the material and the digital. Taking inspiration from historical references, adolescent nostalgia and autoethnography, her work examines ideas and beliefs within material cultures and their correlation with notions prevalent in the information age. She sets out to blur the line between the physical and the immaterial and merge the emotional with the technological.
Her works are informed by digital culture and are created using analogue, labour-intensive techniques. Zofia’s work has been shown in group exhibitions in The Netherlands and in the UK.
She lives and works in London.
