Iza Jagiello

Izabella Jagiello (Warsaw, 1973) lives and works in Madrid, Spain. She received her MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland, and completed her studies in art at Sheffield Hallam University, United Kingdom, and the Universidad Veracruzana de Jalapa, Mexico.


In her practice, she analyses and combines the individual’s inner landscape with the outer landscape. Her works are exercises of imagination for a confluence between the world of nature and the human condition, investigating the contacts and boundaries between psychological, anthropological and biological phenomena. To this end, she often provokes and documents unusual situations in everyday life in collaboration with other artists and accomplices. Her investigations highlight the critical role of imagination in the construction of knowledge and the relativity of knowledge. In her installations and interventions in spaces, she uses photography and video, drawing and sculpture, living matter and found objects.


She has had solo exhibitions at the MPZ National Gallery Zacheta, Warsaw, Poland; Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw, Poland; MUA Museum of the University of Alicante, Spain; SEA, Santa B√°rbara Castle Art Centre, Alicante, Spain; pazYcomedias Gallery, Valencia, Spain; Joan Guaita Gallery, Palma de Mallorca, Spain; AP Gallery, Jalapa, Mexico, among others. She participated in group exhibitions at CAPC Museum of Contemporary Art, Bordeaux, France; MSN Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw; IVAM The Institut Valenci√† d’Art Modern, Valencia, Spain; Aural Gallery, Alicante, Spain; Change and Partner Gallery, Rome, Italy; Francis Naranjo Foundation, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain.
