Paulina Wiszowata - Art Objects (Ma Babies)
October 2013 - January 2014
Challenging the precious notions of painting and sculpture, Paulina Wiszowata infiltrates the art community by selecting detritus from other artists' work, only then to transform it into art-objects, and distribute it to visitors of her exhibition. This ephemerality in her work establishes a dematerializing value system determined by the inter-personal relationships between artist, object, and viewer. Replacing the object with a photograph of this gesture she transforms the object into a concept or idea.
By generating an effortless appearance with calculated gestures, Paulina critiques the very idea of herself as an artist through self-reflexivity. Through the exchange of objects and ideas she turns individuals into performers and they become her material alongside the objects and ideas.
Paulina is a recent graduate of OCAD University.
