The City of Wrocław in cooperation with the Sister City of Dresden has been organizing a residency exchange for artists specializing in workshop graphics for three years now. This year, Maja Dokudowicz is going to the Grafikwerkstatt Studio in Dresden, where she is going to make art works about the city by means of fragments found there, which are deprived of their status. They are not an artifact, they are not lost, they are not even noticed, and they co-create the public space of the city. Through the use of found fragments, as well as classical and experimental techniques of intaglio and convex printing in his graphic works, he intends to render the texture, colour and complexity of the creation that is the city, and in this particular case Dresden.
Artist is a graduate of Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Wrocław and cultural studies at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. Currently, she is a student of inter-faculty doctoral studies at the Wrocław Academy. Winner of the Rector’s scholarship for the Best Students, as well as the scholarship of the Artistic President of Wrocław. She creates monumental graphics, small graphic forms and art books. In his works he analyses the subject of memory and related issues, such as memory and fragment. He considers them in the broadly understood context of contemporary man.
The residency exchange is organised by the sister cities Wrocław and Dresden.
The residency exchange is supported by Grafikwerkstatt in Dresden, Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Wrocław, Engraver’s House, the City Gallery in Wrocław.
