Magdalena Abakanowicz



Abakanowicz Magdalena

(b Felenty, nr Warsaw, 1930). Polish textile artist. She studied at the College of Fine Arts, Sopot, and graduated in 1955 from the Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw. At the beginning of her career she was interested in drawing, painting and sculpture, but after 1960 she concentrated on textile arts in the broad sense of the term. Breaking with tradition, she initiated bold experiments with fibre and fabric. Her work contributed to the revolutionary textile movement known as FIBRE ART and finally entered the domain of modern sculpture.
