Damian Reniszyn: Prosthesis

Damian Reniszyn

born in Jelenia Góra in 1989, lives and works in Warschau
More information: www.damianreniszyn.com

Reniszyn creates objects, photography, multimedia installations and videoperfor­mances. The artist draws attention in his work to the act of art reception through touch. Perception of his objects is dependable on corporeal experience. He investigates situations seemingly without sense, which may appear to be not needed. He uses them as a starting point to build objects, which posses performative potential.

Beata Szczepaniak: About Sculpture - Order

Beata Szczepaniak

born in Zdunska Wola in 1988, lives and works in Poznan
More information: beataszczepaniak.tumblr.com

Her main areas of interest are sculpture, installation and pattern-designing. The central focus of her artistic activities is on form and its embroilment in space. In her works she applies forms, shapes, matters and colours, which, by influencing each other, create defined and highly emotional situations, which in turn comprise a space.
She derives her inspiration from the ongoing processes in nature as well as from the feeling of the things that cannot be observed but can be subconsciously sensed. The attempt to transfer these phenomena into the language of forms is one of her most demanding challenges.
