Born and raised in Stargard, Poland, Aga Tamiola is a multimedia artist living and working in Berlin. In 2013, Tamiola graduated from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, with an MA in Art & Science. She is interested in transformability of matter manifesting itself in sculptural assemblages fusing materials and processes. 

The series Vanishing Voices was the beginning of material exploration for Aga. While observing stages of dying languages, she developed an audio-visual language to depict the linguistic processes involved. She applied a variety of materials spanning from textile, plaster and plastic to metal and glass. At this stage she discovered the human body from a sculptural perspective, which coincided with an awareness of the sculptural qualities of sound waves. This led to the human voice coming to the forefront of her installations, sound pieces and performances.
