Born in Katowice, Poland in 1979, Kwade is an artist who now lives and works in Berlin, Germany. She won the prestigious Piepenbrock Prize for Sculpture in 2008, which was followed by numerous exhibitions across Europe and in the US. Her work often manipulates mental perceptions and physical experiences of how the human body inhabits space and time. Marcel Duchamp and his readymades have hugely influenced Kwade’s artistic practice.
