Joanna Wierzbicka, Nothing is connected to everything; everything is connected to something, 2021, detail.
In her installation Nothing is connected to everything; everything is connected to something
, Joanna Wierzbicka blends sculpture, digital photography, print and video.
Taking the figuration of compost as a starting point to her project Wierzbicka focuses on the relations between various bodies and entities and talks about how “we are always becoming with others, together creating a lively matter of compost, composing and decomposing each other”.
“In my work, there is often an iterative process of sculpting, photographing, printing and sculpting again, through which I bring attention to matter as an active agent and search for the physicality of forms that together can create a fully immersive environment — awakening bodily experiences, evoking haptics, and engaging the sense of touch.”
