Alina Szapocznikow (1926-1973) held a unique  position in the post-war European avant-garde. In the 1960s and early  1970s, she was one of the first artists to experiment with polyester,  which she used to cast parts of her face and body to montage them into  grotesque and sexually charged assemblages. Szapocznikows oeuvre  spans a continuously productive period from the 1950s to her untimely  death in 1973. Her drawings and sculptures represent a previously unseen fusion of a late dark Surrealism with the bright and sexually
provocative  side of Pop-Art.
