Ewa Rebeka Służyńska wants to turn the C. Rockefeller Center for Contemporary Arts in Dresden into a road that will lead you through heaven, hell and purgatory. She is particularly interested in hybrid forms of expression, combining drawing, painting and embroidery elements with installation. The starting point of her activities will be the collection of medieval and early Renaissance works of art located in the Zwinger palace, and its use of symbols mixed with the contemporary pop babble.
Ewa Rebeka Służyńska, a.k.a. E-R-S (b. 1990), graduated with honors in Art Education from the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Arts and Design in Wroclaw; currently a student of Art Mediation. She is a graphic artist and illustrator, author of collages, fanzines, murals; organizer of workshops, exhibitions and sometimes even (once) a curator.
Służyńska’s artwork stems from her personal experiences and observations that she translates into often naive and childish – but her own – style. She considers art as a cynical, dark-humoured, intelligent narration of the world surrounding us. She is a huge fan of hip-hop / rap culture, deeply inspired by the medieval art and honesty. She does what she wants, using the children’s nasty lines that emphasize the half-playful nature of her work.
