Magdalena Wiecek (1924-2008) was born in Katowice (Poland), a steel city in Silesia that forever marked her taste and her experimentation with industrial materials.

She masterfully developed a universal language endowed with her own sense of narrative poetics: abstract and timeless, yet present and urgent — provoking with illusions, never settled with memories .
