Sobre la autora:

Katarzyna Kozyra (born 1963) is a Polish video artist. She finished German studies in the Warsaw University (1985–1988). She graduated in 1993 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and Hochshule für Graphik und Buchkunst in Leipzig and received a Paszport Polityki award in 1997. She has exhibited internationally since 1997, at venues including Brown University and Carnegie International in the U.S.

Her art was involved in a 1999 censorship incident in Poland. Her photo portrait of Slawomir Belina in a Warsaw exhibition in 2000 was also controversial for its alleged eroticism, as his anus was in the centre of the composition.

Since 2003 Kozyra has received a DAAD grant, and has developed a new form of performance involving operatic singing.

In 1999 represented Poland in the 48th Venice Biennale , where she got commendation for video installation “Men’s Bathhouse”. In September 2011 she received the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage grant. (*From wikipedia)
