About

Aleksandra Stasiak's approach to fine art stems from a consistent fascination with the intersection of art, science, and humanities, leading to an interdisciplinary framework. The aim is to create a platform that allows for diverse "languages" and individuals to engage in discourse about contemporary issues like social, climate, and sustainability crises. The artist's projects act as an ore of art and science, creating an inclusive space for all.

Equipped with a scientific background in chemistry, Stasiak demonstrates expertise in a variety of analytical methods, organic synthesis, and material knowledge. Working now for a PhD in systemic design, Stasiak deepens in the themes around the circular economy, recycling, and broadly understood sustainability. Additionally, she works closely with research and environmental themes from a posthuman perspective.

 

Media such as drawing, three-dimensional installations, and non-material formats are frequently used. Natural forces, sounds, physicochemical processes, and cognition significantly influence the body of work. Stasiak developed a process of collecting and using residual charcoals and ashes from burning wood. This method finds its roots in firewalk practices and their transient transformative impact.

 

Central to the work are energy processes that form the core of all bio-chemical interactions in our world. Stasiak's reflections also consider the inherent value of more-than-human structures and non-renewable resources beyond their industrial application. This exploration not only addresses the pressing issue of climate change and our interconnected relationship with the natural world but also delves into the individual relationship between one's surroundings and mental processes. This body of work can be seen as an exploration of the polarity of nature's creative and destructive forces, mirroring the psychological balance between connection and detachment.
