Katarzyna Przezwańska. Fountain
Zachęta – National Gallery of Art
KatarzynaPrzezwańskain her artistic practice, she often refers to nature and architecture. She combines both of these fields in an effort to improve the quality of human life, constantly trying to make art useful. She is inspired by both vernacular architecture and the 20th-century classics as well as geological phenomena and vegetative processes. Przezwańska is the author of architectural interventions, installations, and paintings, where she often uses natural materials: rocks, minerals, and plants.
The installation was realised in collaboration with the University of Warsaw. In October 2018, as part of the Island project, Fountain will be found in the garden on the Ochota campus.
"The Zachęta in the Summer / Plac Małachowskiego 3" programme is organized with the financial support from the City of Warsaw:

How does a building work? What are the first impressions it makes? What do we see in subsequent visits? What is the impact of the building on the employees? And finally, what is it as a declaration of a company? Going beyond the questions asked in the abovementioned study, one may ask about the meaning of the senses, in experiencing, in feeling architecture, and analyse buildings from the perspective of the body.Zachęta – National Gallery of ArtZachęta
