Lidia Kostanek

Poland Born in: 2018

Lidia Kostanek is a Polish artist residing in France since 2003, the year in which she moved after her master's degree at the Beaux-Arts in Warsaw. Her work on female identity, gender and the condition of the human body comes to life in ceramic sculptures from 2013.

Present at many major ceramic art events - Terralha (European Festival of Ceramic Arts, 2016), International Ceramic Biennial (Carouge Museum, Switzerland 2017), Boleslawiec Triennale 2018 (International Ceramic Center, Poland), C14 ( Contemporary Ceramics Fair, Paris) - his works go off the beaten track, also appearing in scenes from Luca Guadagnino's film “Suspiria". In 2019, she joined the reference work "Ceramics, 90 contemporary artists" by Charlotte Vannier and Véronique Petit Laforet, as one of the main artists of international contemporary ceramics, whose works challenge, seduce or disturb.

Her sculptures challenge and explore notions of idealized femininity, seeking to invent a new relationship to the body. They reject the dichotomy between delicacy and violence, seduction and repulsion, pleasure and pain… “Look at me! They seem to say. “Don't look away, even if it's uncomfortable. I'm not here to look pretty, I'm not here to question and please you! "

In his rather surrealist works - disturbing and transgressive - we thus find many levels of reading.
