discussion with Julia Siwek
about waiting in art

„Warteland is a place of waiting. It′s a waiting room, bus stop, queue, week, month, year, whole life…
Waiting as a mystery of human existence referring to time, passing and death. Waiting as a physical
and psychological state, philosophical concept, metaphor, symbol. Being in between, in emptiness,
in nerves, excitement, thoughtfulness. I observe Warteland, examine this place, analyze it, becoming
a scientist with the word, line and paper as a tool of cognition.
I compose conclusions — I draw, photocopy, cut, make transfers, take notes, write letters (non–letters,
letters–tangles, letters–escapes, letters–non–letters). All drawings are created simultaneously,
reflecting on each other, becoming their inaccurate copies. A study carried out in the second and third
quarter of 2018 in Berlin, on the topic of waiting presented in the form of a drawing installation
conducive to feelings of confusion, repetition, reflection, focus and introspection.”
Lena Czerniawska, 2018
Lena Czerniawska was born in 1989 in Nowy Dwór Mazowiecki in Poland. During her childhood and
youth, she was inspired by her mother Julia Wernio, who was a theatre director. Subsequently, her early
influences came from the theatre, as well as the literature, music and visual art she was exposed
to during these years.
Czerniawska lived in Wroclaw, and studied in studios of Eugeniusz Get-Stankiewicz, Eugeniusz
Smolinski and Michal Jedrzejewski at Academy of Fine Arts, majoring in Graphic Arts, also developing
the beginnings of her practice within drawing and performing arts. Later, she began teaching at the
academy as an assistant to professor Jacek Szewczyk. In 2017, Czerniawska moved to Berlin to focus
on her individual career.
Her main artistic focus is drawing, and she sees this as the critical component of her practice from
which her ideas are derived. Her work encompasses installation, graphic design and performing,
particularly with experimental or improvised music. Conceptually, Lenas multifaceted practice
investigates reality through image and temporality, and aims at harnessing the various influences
across media that she has embraced over the years.
Trying more to search rather than to find, she knows that who finds did not search right
(Aglaja Veteranyi).
