Halina MrożekGraduated from the Faculty of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, 2009. Her graduation work Sculpt Couture was awarded the Medal of the Academy of Fine Arts. Won the 1st prize in the international fashion competition Off Fashion Kielce (2010) and the 2nd prize in the international competition Creative Graduate Prize (2009). Her works have been presented at exhibitions, eg at Museum of Contemporary Art MOCAK in Krakow, at the Solvay Centre of Contemporary Art, Galeria Nowa and the Palace of Art in Krakow; at art and fashion festivals such as the Warsaw Art Fair, the Art & Fashion Festival, Off Fashion and Warsaw Fashion Street. They have also been published in Polish and foreign magazines, such as Wysokie Obcasy, Machina, Exklusiv, EksMagazyn, Idoll Mag and Novo Magazine.I graduated in sculpture, since I can remember I was always fascinated by all kinds of space interaction. I consider fashion as a modern kind of sculpture, more demantoid than an independent piece of art, not just a gallery object. What excite, me the most about Sculpt Couture is the fact that those projects, forms cannot be create without thinking about the human body, they live with and depend on it. Read Less

The interaction between man and environment favors creation of masks. Since birth, we wear clothes across the life span. They take various forms, enriched by colors, shapes and fabrics, often possessing artistic values as sculptures. It is a form of symbiosis, an unbreakable bond. Body becomes a medium for art form, combining the person and his/her clothes into one object, gaining new forms andmeanings. In relations with outside world, clothes become a mask, an armor, a camouflage. They are the first message sent when in contact with another human being. People constantly create their image using clothes, emphasizing some qualities of their personality, while hiding the other. We can interpret the image using aesthetic values, or turn to psychological and practical approach. The choice of clothes is never accidental. These carefully selected compositions are my work'sstarting point, defining its form. Through observation, I am creating personas - images determined by people and mental state of their minds. I'm inspired by the cloth forms I encounter, which results in a unique, personal interpretation. I strive to capture the physical form of mental image. I don't present specific persons, merely summarizing the "impressions" of images and behaviors. I'm featuring exceptional (extreme) individuals, highly influencing the environment. Their imageforces us to interpret them in a way they "expect", a way they "let" us for. Those characters appear to be "out of the time", they could have lived in the past, can live now or may live in the future. Their goal is to create delight, desire and concern, to embarrass or disgust, just like strangers who raise extreme, strong feelings. I am well aware that after getting to know the person, his or her visual outlook loses its meaning, but the point of my attention goes further. I focus on the messages carried by the aesthetic values of the created raiment, driving attention to how easily we are influenced by visual suggestions clothes may provide. Read Less
