Marta Czok


Country: Libano

British of Polish origins, Marta Czok was born in Beirut (Lebanon) in 1947. The following year her family moved to London where she completed her training at St Martin’s School of Art, taking part for several years in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions. In the past 30 years her works have been shown in Europe and America also as part of the “Alitalia per l’Arte” project. In 2000 Alitalia commissioned a triptych by Czok, donated to Pope John Paul II for his 80th birthday. The same year, the French Embassy to the Holy See invited her to paint a work on the theme of the Jubilee. In collaboration with Albemarle Gallery, London, the Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd also commissioned a painting by Czok for their ship Navigator of the Seas. In 2008 the Polish national television has dedicated a documentary to Marta Czok focusing on the relationship between her work and the Second World War. Among her most recent exhibitions, several deserve a special mention. Firstly, her anthological exhibition held in 2005 at the Musei di San Salvatore in Lauro in Rome and secondly, the solo exhibition held in the Pomposa’s Abbey (near Ferrara) in 2006 and finally the exhibition held in Palazzo Ferraioli in January 2009, dedicated to Children in War and the Shoah which was also shown in Padua, in Palazzo Antico Ghetto, ex Sinagoga Tedesca, with the support of the Comune di Padova and the local Jewish Community. During 2011 her show “About Us” was exhibited in Palazzo dei Papi (Viterbo), Scuderie di Palazzo Ruspoli (Nemi, Rome) Palazzo Zuckermann (Padua) and Palazzo Zenobio (Venice). Finally we’d like to mention Dietro le quinte, which took place in Frascati in September 2012, Icons&Idols, a multimedia show held in 2013 at MACRO Testaccio di Roma – La Pelanda, born from a collaboration with Jacek Ludwig Scarso and Elastic Theatre from London, and the anthological show that took place in the summer of 2014 at Castello di Calatabiano, in Sicily, organized by MacS, Museo Arte Contemporanea Sicilia. She lives and works in Rome.
