„It  is  a  fundamental  principle  of  Magdalena  Cichon’s  work  not  to  offer  any  ultimate  signs    neither to herself nor the viewer. Continually, new constellations between color, shape and texture arise. As a viewer, we quickly realize that we are not entitled to any secure knowledge or distinct recognition. Magdalena Cichon works with what is unexpected and volatile; her strategy relies on the potential of coincidence as well as her conscious interventions.“

Angelika Steinmetz-Oppelland,  Art historian

Magdalena Cichon graduated in the Painting and Textile Arts Class at Burg Giebichenstein Halle in 2014. Her mostly figurative paintings are researching anthropological constants, as well as human differences – with bodies and their various expressions via shape, posture, and movement, serving as symbols for the range of what it means to be human.
