Alicja Kwade was born in 1979 in Katowice (Poland).
She lives and works in Berlin (Germany). She was educated at the Universität der Künste in Berlin (Germany). Alicja Kwade's works at first glance look like ready-made. This is not the case: working with materials and objects in pairs, like two cars with unevenly shaped bonnets that she juxtaposes, she creates apparent symmetries between the elements. Mirror as material and reflection as effect are omnipresent in her production, referring both to vanity and to the blurring of the boundaries between reality and its simulacrum.
