Artist

Iza Tarasewicz

Poland

Iza Tarasewicz’s works serve as temporary conduits for a meeting of substances, energies, locations, temporalities, intonations, and concepts, which the artist identifies as only events in a continuous series of material and symbolic interactions. Her objects and arrangements are base things that resist the binary of natural and artificial, joining together quotidian, ignoble, or emblematic stuff such as clay, plaster, concrete, gold, steel, glass, tar, animal fat, skin, fur, intestines, plasticine, plant fibers, dung, and ash. Her investigative practice distills, combines, deconstructs and redirects materials so as to rediscover hidden aspects and relations, while equally signifying a contingency or deficiency in rational, human understanding to access such properties.
