Martyna Jastrzębska (born in 1987) – multimedia artist, a graduate and a lecturer at Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, Poland.

Since 2013 Martyna Jastrzębska has been working with “bitumix” which constitutes her signature technique utilising a variety of mixtures of glues and bitumen. This material has become the means of expression for the artists’ interests – focused around imitating organic and ambiguous matter. Placing objects and symbols that function in the popular imagination in new contexts has been an important motif in her artistic activity. Martyna Jastrzębska continues exploring the notions that began in the work entitled Once Upon a Time (2013) – the “unmemory” – a deformed consciousness, the “bad” memory that impairs the clear message of symbols and events.
