Marta Dyczkowska (b.1980, Poland) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She graduated from the Ulster University School of Art & Design in 2018, where she was awarded the Artist Residency. She was also awarded Platform Arts Graduate Residency and the Artist Moving Image NI Graduate Award. Her works have been exhibited both nationally and internationally and featured in Circa Arts Magazine. Marta currently holds a studio at Flax Arts Studios.
“She can only build from the visible as she unbuilds the invisible, and vice versa” Trinh T. Minh-Ha. Marta Dyczkowskas’ recent body of work is an installation consisting of a series of photographs and video work. Inspired by Johns Bergers book “A 7th Man” which portrayed the experiences of migrant men in Europe in the 1970’s Marta draws attention to a modern migrant woman and explores the states of uncertainty and anxiety brought about by recent tumultuous events in British politics. This work serves as an attempt to find a voice, not only for Dyczkowska herself, but for other European women living in the UK. Through performance, video, sculpture, and installation, Marta uses objects as thresholds that link the past and present, producing multiple narratives and manifestations.
