Claire Zakiewicz is a British born visual artist working across, drawing, film, sound and performance. Her primary area of enquiry is the phenomenology of drawing. She examines the intimacy of exchange and the pictorialization of space through performing drawing and sculpting sounds into a physicality of sorts.
Each body of work is the outcome of critical research and observation of how objects in space, whether drawn, photographed or performed, are perceived and understood. Zakiewicz asks: what else is involved in the perceiving of objects in space?
Zakiewicz recently exhibited an off-site project titled Out of the Mothership during the 57th Venice Biennale at ARTIsm3160 gallery, Venice. In 2011 she completed a research-based Masters of Fine Art at Sir John Cass School of Art, London, where she researched the physical and metaphorical relationships between sound and drawing. Zakiewicz has exhibited and performed throughout various international institutions and museums including, Tate Tanks (UK), Tate Modern (UK), Resonance FM (UK), ARTIsm3160 (Venice), USF (Norway), Bill Young's Dance Studio (NYC).
