A native of Poland, Gosia Herc-Balaszek currently lives and practices in Southern California. Her sculptural work engages concepts of domesticity, simulation, and perpetual erasure, focusing on the architecture aboard military installations, particularly Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.

Her practice slips between collecting, archiving, voyeurism, and vandalism. Gosia is a recent graduate of the University of California at Irvine MFA program and alumna of the Visual Arts program at the University of California at San Diego.
