Abstract

The article is an attempt to apply the performative concept of the artist's theory formulated by Grzegorz Sztabiński to the analysis of the work of Zofia Lipecka. The artist works in France, but is of Polish origin. She creates works in various techniques: painting, video, installations, she touches on many topics: from the archeology of signs, the identity of the symmetry of nature, to ecology and historical memory. Lipecka's actions are unmatricized and cannot be easily defined. Thanks to this, they became an excellent material for analysis according to the assumptions of Sztabiński's theory. Its fundamental point is to give the artist freedom by using the participle phrase: "creating art".
