Koscielak is a visual artist and a designer as well as a curator who has had numerous solo exhibitions at galleries and museums in Poland, Italy, Germany and the USA. She has had group exhibitions in Greece, Holland, Germany, Poland and the USA. Her works are in private and public collections worldwide, including Calgary University, Chełm Museum, Center for Polish Sculpture in Orońsko and the Museum of Modern Art in Hunfeld, Germany. Koscielak's art is strongly connected with the traditions of minimal and conceptual art, she draws from these sources and updates them. Her multimedia installations, paintings and digital graphics center on her lifelong fascination with the phenomena of light. During the last decade, post-conceptual reflections on the complex relationships between nature, culture and technology have begun to appear in her works.
