About Iza Tarasewicz

After a year of medicine studies, Iza Tarasewicz went to the Faculty for Sculpture and Performing Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznán. She creates sculptural installations approaching scientific theory from an aesthetic point of view. One of her main interests is the Chaos Theory, assuming that all things are related to one another and a small change can make the system behave differently.

Her sculptures often are shaped like modular systems that can be changed infinitely. They are characterized by a complex braid of possible interactions, transformations, transmutations and connections. Consequentially, for the three works in the Art Collection Telekom 'Turba Turbo', 'Arena I' and 'ONCE INFORMATION HAS PASSED INTO PROTEIN' there is no fixed way of installing the works. These works can be displayed in different configurations.

Her works have been shown at Pori Art Museum, Finland (2019), Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius (2018), at the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo (2016) and 11th Gwangju Biennale (2016). She was also part of the presentation in the Polish Pavilion at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale (2018). In 2019 she was awarded with the Bayerische Kunst Foerderpreise and in 2015 she was the winner of the , Tarasewicz was the winner of Bayerische Kunst Forderpreise 2019 and in 2015 she was the winner of the 'View – Deutsche Bank Award' for young Polish artists with an exhibition at the Zacheta National Gallery in Warsaw.
