MARTA MASTERNAK
         WORK     ABOUT   CONTACT





Marta Masternak was born in Poznan, Poland and now lives and works in Berlin. She studied Painting, 
Sculpture and Multimedia at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and Fine Art at Gerrit Rietveld Academy
in Amsterdam. Before she studied Architecture, which was natural pre-development of her current artistic activities.
Masternak´s work oscillates mostly between sculpture, film, sound and drawing and it is presented in site-specific arrangements,
that intend to evoke a mood rather than telling a story. Her installations are built from mixed media
and are based on research into shapes, the fluid transition of material and color from one form to another,
and how this impacts the viewer´s perception. Her compositions strike an odd balance between spontaneous
expressions and precise calculations, often relating to elements of  forms and lines, it creates a visual rhythm and fluid continuity,
which exposes the phantom of time, the fragility of movement and the present day human condition.  
Other important subject in her works is the processing of memory and how this has shifted through engagement
with digital media. She is also a member of the experimental jazz/noise/punk band:  permanenterror.
Currently in the Art Residency Flux Factory in New York City, granted by TMU.
