In April 2019 UK-based artist Magda Fabianczyk will travel to Mauritius as part of the Triangle Fellowship Programme and attend a two-week workshop based around the theme ‘Conflict Zone’.
Magda Fabianczyk is a Polish artist based in London and working internationally. She uses co-creation, narrative mediation and participation to develop videos, publications, performances and installations. Her work explores notions of conflict and challenges existing social hierarchies, by creating possibilities of direct communication between those who would not otherwise meet. It draws from political and social theory, as well as everyday life, to produce shared narratives. Magda studied Art and Politics at Goldsmiths University and Fine Art at Central St Martins. She was also trained as a narrative mediator. She is a founding member of Dziewuchy London - Polish women activist group in UK, which staged numerous political protests and debates. She currently teaches at Central Saint Martins. She worked on numerous projects and exhibitions in London and abroad.
Established in 2003, pARTage is an association of Mauritian artists working to promote contemporary art within the Indian Ocean Region (Comoros, Madagascar, Reunion and the Seychelles).
As well as promoting contemporary art in Mauritius and in the region, pARTage acts as a platform of exchange between contemporary artists both locally and internationally, and between artists working in the contemporary arts and the public, creating an increase in both the audience and the market for contemporary art. The organisation enables local artists to increase their confidence, bringing them together in workshops, conferences and events, and providing more opportunities to participate in exhibitions and international artists residencies.
