"is that a promise or a threat?"
Kasia Sosnowski is a multi-disciplinary artist working in ceramics, drawing, performance, and video. Her work focuses on ideas around care, fragility, and transformation. She draws from individual experiences as a means to explore difficult ideas around transgressive bodies, grief, and resilience. Her use of absurdity and humour is a method to encourage access and intimacy. Her ceramic sculptures will be featured in the group exhibition The Faceless Familiar at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery from December 3, 2022 - February 11, 2023.
Kasia Sosnowski is an artist from southern Alberta. She graduated with honours from the University of Lethbridge with a combined BFA in both Art History & Museum Studies, and Art Studio in 2014. She has worked at the Banff Centre, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, and the Allied Arts Council of Lethbridge where she worked in preparatory/gallery installation, artist administration, public art, and community building roles. She has shown her work in galleries internationally and across Canada including: The Esker Foundation (Calgary), Neutral Ground Artist Run Centre (Regina), Stride Gallery (Calgary), Art Mûr (Montreal), Art Gallery of Hamilton (Hamilton), Corban Estate Arts Centre (Auckland, NZ), and most recently, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge).
She is currently living in Tkaronto, Ontario where she is an MFA Candidate at York University. Her thesis exhibition, "is that a promise or a threat?" is scheduled for April 2023.
