About

Nadia Magda Abatorab-Manikowska is an interdisciplinary artist whose work weaves the tapestry of time and explores the reverberations of generational trauma endured by women. With a background in curating and photography, Nadia’s artistic journey is a nuanced exploration of femininity, societal expectations, and the intricate dance between personal and collective histories. Her practice extends beyond static imagery, delving into the dynamic realm of moving image, sculpture, and textile to convey narratives that challenge, provoke, and invite interpretation. Rooted in a commitment to amplify unheard voices, Nadia’s work dances on the edges of activism, embodying ethos that demands can be powerful when delivered quietly yet authoritatively.
