ALEKSANDRA SZAFIEJEW (PL)
Aleksandra Szafiejew’s multiple approach to art has led her to experiment with sculpture, print and even architecture.
A series of her sculptures made in glass develop the topic of serial repetition: many pieces consist of several modules, which contribute to give an idea of an alienation perpetrated on the main subject. For instance, in one of her work little toddlers’ bodies are put into a replicative process which relocates the element under a totally different perspective from common one, as the babies accumulated one next to the other become a mysterious and upsetting vision. The choice of employing kiln-formed painted glass, showing again a remarkably modern, refined conception of materiality. The subjects vary from abstract forms to human busts.
Moreover, her print series qualifies for a global abstractive attitude, where the chromatic combinations contribute to create sometimes a dreamlike, undefined world and some others urban panoramas depicted with a minimalist, geometrical abstraction.
