Ex Purgamento is a small gallery inside a private apartment in Camden Town, London owned by Natalia and Simon Zagorscy-Thomas. For the past three years Natalia has been curating one group show a year on a chosen theme, interpreted in different media by international artists. The emphasis is on showing work of Polish and other foreign artists alongside their British colleagues.
Natalia Zagorska-Thomas was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1967. She studied fine art at the Canberra School of Art and Sydney College of Arts in Australia. After moving to London in the late 1980’s she graduated from Central St. Martins School of Art and Design in London, with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. Since then she has worked as an artist, stage and costume designer and jeweller.
In 2004 she received an MA in Textile Conservation from the Textile Conservation Centre, Winchester. She has worked as a freelance textile conservator at various institutions including the Royal Academy, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Museum of London, Wawel Royal Castle in Krakow, the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar and Zenzie Tinker Textile Conservation in Brighton.
