Audra Wolowiec is an interdisciplinary artist whose work oscillates between sculpture, installation, text and performance with an emphasis on sound and the material qualities of language. Her poetic sound installations and experimental language scores often use the gap, space, or breath in between speech—not as forms of negation, but as complex generators of meaning. Wolowiec's work has been shown internationally and in the United States at MASS MoCA, Socrates Sculpture Park, Art in General, Norte Maar, Studio 10, REVERSE, The Poetry Project, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and Center for Performance Research. Featured in BOMB, Modern Painters, Brooklyn Rail, The New York Times, Time Out NY, Sound American, and reductive journal. Residencies include Bemis Center for Contemporary Art and Complex Systems Art and Physics Residency at the University of Oregon. She was the inaugural Artist Educator in Residence at Dia:Beacon and currently teaches at SUNY Purchase and Parsons School of Design. She is based between New York City and Detroit.
