Katarzyna Przezwańska

The artist is inspired by both vernacular architecture and the 20th century classics as well as geological phenomena and vegetative processes. Przezwańska creates architectural interventions, installations, and sculptures, where she often uses natural materials such as rocks, minerals, and plants.

Studio #212

Artist

Larissa Kopp & Florian Aschka

Larissa Kopp & Florian Aschka work with staged photography and utilize performance as a tool to investigate queer strategies as well as mythology and the notion of a collective cultural memory. This extends to video, interactive happenings as well as performative interventions in which boundaries of prevailing gender roles, constructed exoticisms and standardization processes are confronted with the notion of a queer utopia. The term “Queer” relates to an artistic practice, which questions social and economic structures, media and technology.

Larissa Kopp & Florian Aschka has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Poland; Kunsthaus Graz, Austria; and Belvedere 21, Austria, among others.
