Magda Stawarska-Beavan

Magda Stawarska-Beavan works predominantly with sound, moving image and print, often connecting traditional printmaking processes with new technologies such as digital audio. Magda has exhibited nationally and internationally, in a gallery environment as well as in public spaces. She has recently completed a month’s residency in MuseumsQuartier 21, Vienna where she presented Krakow to Venice in 12 hours an 8-channel installation in an outdoor public setting (21st July – 23rd November, 2013). This was part of the TONSPUR programme, which is renowned for working collaboratively with sound artists and musicians. In 2011 she was commissioned to produce a sound installation in Preston City Centre by In Certain Places (The Arcade). The piece was also presented as part of a large-scale sound installation (Klanghimmel) by Andres Bosshard, in collaboration with 15 European artists, at the Museums’ Quartier in Vienna (2011).
