“The works by Katarzyna Ozga works shown in the exhibition “(O)pakowanie” (Packaging), embody the artist’s interest in recording human existence in the context of the natural environment. Ozga reconstructs particular parts of the body in specific ways using unconventional materials; packages and wrapping papers from mass-produced consumer goods. The juxtaposition of bodily forms with ephemeral materials (e.g. nets for fruit, plastic bags, egg cartons, plastic cups, newspapers) is a starting point for a meditation on the fragility of human existence on the themes of lasting and passing, blooming, decay, beginning and end. ” – Magda Durda-Dmitruk
