Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 25. september 2021 --

Wiktoria Gazda (1994, Poland) works mainly in space, with objects and installations. Interested in the relation of physical and intangible, she usually chooses materials based on their symbolic meaning. Her practice reflects on the interdependence of emotional states, culture and physical experience. She often refers to psychology and motifs well established in our culture to examine current issues.
