Iza Tarasewicz

A sculptor, draughtswoman and performer. Her objects and their arrangement elude the opposition between the natural and the artificial. As part of complex practices of interpreting, collecting, deconstructing and reorganising material, social, historical and ideological systems, she attentively tests and transforms simple materials as clay, plaster, concrete, steel, glass, asphalt, animal fat, leather, fur, intestines, plasticine, plant fibres, pollen or ash. Her works have been associated with hylozoism (the philosophical notion that all matter is animate).

    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.
