For many women, the desire to give birth seems obvious. What if, however, this desire is impossible to fulfil, if it is restricted by legal regulations and restrictions? In her new work, Piotrowska-Auffret explores this area and looks at the relationship between personal and professional life. The artist relies both on her personal experience and on other women’s narratives. She examines this female yearning through a network of reproduction policies, numerous promises and attempts to exploit it.
Renata Piotrowska-Auffret is a choreographer and a performer; in her works she uses tools of experimental dance, performative arts, dramaturgy and theatre. Piotrowska-Auffret confronts choreography with conceptual thinking. In her works she contemplates contemporary world through deriving the inspirations from life experiences and theoretical texts from human sciences. She is interested in analysing historical and contemoprary body politics and representations as well as in the relations between text and movement.
She was a priority artist in the frame of Aerowaves Twenty17. She received scholarships from Adam Mickiewicz Institute, Art Stations Foundation and Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in Poland, programme „Młoda Polska“ (2010) and „Stypendium Ministra“ (2013).
