MAGDA GÓRSKA is a collage artist from Warsaw. As the only tool in her artistic work she uses an object indispensable nowadays - a mobile phone. She believes that collages arise from the need to question and carefully evaluate the world. She aims to show the harmony between nature and people, ridicule the patterns, and undermine current perceptions of reality. Magda exhibits in New York, Barcelona, Edinburgh and Warsaw. In life, she is guided by the principle that hedonism is the sweetest form of bondage. She believes in going crazy, dreaming, and that complaining doesn't get you anywhere near your goal. INSTAGRAM
