Bronia Iwanczak is a visual artist whose mixed media practice encompasses film, photography, artist books, and sculptural installation. For the last 20 years she has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has been the recipient of grants including both the Australia Council’s residency programs for Los Angeles and New York. More recently she has engaged in residencies in France (2013) and India (2014,2015). Her work is held in a number of national and international collections which include Artbank, the Samstag collection, the Tate Gallery Library and the Penelope Seidler collection. With a diverse background that straddles the disciplines of Design, Visual Arts and Exhibition Curation, her interests lie at the intersection of narrative explorations of contested histories in relation to the built and natural environment. Sub themes include, social revolution, the politics of religion, esoteric belief systems, the consciousness of objects and technology. Recent curatorial projects include a collaborative year long gallery project ‘Affiliated Text’ exploring visual representations of language; incorporating inter-textual, semiotic, linguistic and graphic approaches in the cultural and political sphere.
