Matylda Krzykowski is a transdisciplinary practitioner focusing on collaborative and performative projects in physical and digital space. Her tools of exploration include exhibitions, installations, scenography, art direction, choreography, TV game shows, theatre and experimental formats like Desktop Exhibition, Design Date or Online Depot.
Krzykowski attended Jan van Eyck Academy and Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht. She is a founding member of Depot Basel place for contemporary design, Switzerland. In 2017/2018 she was visiting professor in the Industrial Design / Interface Design Department of the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel, Germany with seminars ranging from Methods & Formats to Parallax. In 2018/2019 she was visiting professor at the AIADO department at The School of Arts Institute Chicago where she worked on “Objects and Spaces for Angles and Machines.” In 2018, alongside Vera Sacchetti, Krzykowski co-founded Foreign Legion – a multi-format globally active curatorial practice that is “foreign” and “everywhere.”
Matylda Krzykowski is our first guest in this year’s speaker series edition. During specially developed public presentation format “Desktop Exhibition”, curator clicks through files on the desktop, in a manner akin to walking through a physical space and guiding visitors through an exhibition.
