Ana Rewakowicz

Ana Rewakowicz is an interdisciplinary artist/researcher born in Poland, living and working in Montreal, Canada. She received her BFA from Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto and MFA from Concordia University, Montréal, Canada in 2001. She works with inflatables and explores relations between temporal, portable architecture, the body and the environment. In contrast to the stable mass of monumental sculpture and architecture, her costumes and structures are air-filled, mobile, and concerned with the places and people that activate them. Incorporating new materials and technology, she builds devices that createpublic and yet intimate experiences. Her art crosses into many disciplines including invention, design, architecture and performance and has been shown nationally and internationally. Her recent exhibitions include: ISEA2014, Dubai, UAE, British School at Rome (2014), Polish Institute in Rome (2013), Romanian Academy, Rome, Italy (2012), Joyce Yahouda Gallery, Montréal, Canada (2011), CSW Laznia, Gdansk, Poland (2010); Pori Art Museum, Finland (2010); La Maison Europénne de la Photographie, Paris, France (2009); FREEZE, Anchorage, Alaska, US (2009); EMPAC Rensselaer, Troy, NY, USA (2009); Liverpool Biennial, UK (2008); Stiftensen 3,14, Bergen, Norway (2008); Manif d’art 4 Biennal, Québec, Canada (2008); Wäinö Aaltosen Museo, Turku, Finland (2007); Kunstverein Wolfsburg, Germany (2006) and Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (2005).
