Wiska Radkiewicz

Wiska Radkiewicz received her doctorate in music composition from Princeton University and is an electroacoustic composer and sound artist with a focus on pedagogical studies, audio-visual composition and creative writing.

Radkiewicz has also received training at the Conservatory of Warsaw, Poland and the City University of New York for composition, the University of Paris-Sorbonne for musicology, and the Groupe de Recherches Musicales — Conservatory of Paris for electronic music composition. She now lives and works in Roosevelt, New Jersey.

In 2000, Radkiewicz initiated the SoundSon Project with Paris-based artist Andrea Cohen, and together they co-direct this web-based approach to audio sharing and collaborative composition. Based on principles developed in the SoundSon environment, composers and students from around the world are able to engage in an ongoing exchange of sounds from which a common composition can be created. A series of works created in this way by Radkiewicz, Cohen, and their collaborators have been aired, performed, and published internationally by Radio France, NAISA (New Adventures in Sound Art (Toronto), and the 2014 Invisible Places conference (Portugal), among others.

EXHIBITION: Of Other Faces

September 18, 2014 - October 25, 2014

Of other faces is a group exhibition featuring five artists whose works employ strategies of mirroring and doubling to investigate the paradoxical nature of our dualistic world. Through the representation or evocation of reflections, echoes, or iterations, the photographs, sounds, and videos of Andrea Cohen and Wiska Radkiewicz, Victoria Fu, Marta Ryczko, and Manuel Saiz interrogate, express, or reveal hidden contradictions within contemporary social systems as they relate to dualities of self and Other.
