Justyna Górowska (1988) is a performance artist whose practise is focused reconciliation of the post-humanistic condition. Her practice explores a new model of living where humanity can evolve past its privileged place in the universe, where the individual can become one with her reality, as the artist poetically describes, “as water in water.” Delicate, precious objects, videos, installations and performances are founded upon the belief that culture creates humans, that culture is but another level of nature created in evolution. Art is biological. Obsessed with the creation of taut emotions in her viewers, Górowska uniquely finds the precise movements and actions to tease out and control the viewer’s sensitivity, reminding us of our most primal and perhaps, evolved desires. Justyna Górowska has an MFA and Bachelors in Intermedia from Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland. Presently, she is a PhD candidate at the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Studies, University of Arts in Poznan. Since 2014, she has cooperated with the lokal_30 gallery in Warsaw. FRSI [Intermedia Art Development Foundation] board member. She has exhibited and performed widely throughout Europe, Indonesia, Israel, and North America. In 2010, she won the first prize in the 7th edition of the Samsung Art Master competition at the CCA Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw and in 2011 she won the Grand Prix at the Festival of Young Arts ‘Przeciąg’ in Szczecin.
