THE POWER OF TOUCH

 

SERIES OF 9 CANVASES / ACRYLIC ON CANVAS / FROM 50CM X 50CM TO 80CM X 100CM / 2023

 

The series explores the fundamental significance of tactile interactions, evolving in meaning throughout various stages of human life. These paintings poignantly emphasize the essence of nurturing relationships, the inseparable bonds between parents and children, and the intimate connections shared by couples.

 

Spanning a period of over two years, the onset of the 2020s saw a global halt where touch, a cornerstone of human connection, was abruptly forbidden. The COVID-19 pandemic swiftly stripped away humanity's most intrinsic and essential act: touch. A kiss, a hug, or even a simple handshake became prohibited, prompting deep reflection on the indispensable nature of physical contact. This sudden deprivation posed various questions about the human need for touch and illuminated the stark realities of loneliness when one encounters another person yet cannot bridge the physical distance.

EVERYTHING IS ART

MIXED TEXTILE INSTALLATION / ACRYLIC AND CORD ON FABRIC / 2022

 

Art as a catalyst for fashion.
Fashion as an act of activism.
Activism as the catalyst for systemic change.

The typical men's garments—shirts and blazers—are often symbols of position and status. They are worn by politicians, celebrities, and men of power to convey seriousness and professionalism. However, Aleksandra has chosen to transform these garments into her canvas, adorning them with protest slogans and vibrant depictions of vulvas. This is her statement against patriarchy and an instrumental step toward dismantling the outdated system. Just as an outdated piece of cloth, the old system must go.

SOMETIME

 

110 NOTES / 29,7CM X 42CM / ACRYLIC ON PAPER / 2022

Aleksandra frequently incorporates words as the foundation of her research process. In her series "Sometime," words take center stage, becoming the stars of the work. She devised an intriguing sentence structure: WE SHOULD ALL _______________ SOMETIME. From this framework, she crafted 110 notes about "should have" activities, ranging from humorous and trivial to profound and life-changing decisions.

 

The series probes why certain actions are taken while others are neglected, questioning what hinders individuals, why criticism is often levied without firsthand experience, and why certain opportunities remain unexplored. These inquiries initiated a three-year period of observation and documentation of artist and others' life choices.

ALWAYS JUDGING

 

SERIES OF 7 CANVASES / ACRYLIC ON CANVAS / 60CM X 80CM  / 2022

Emerging from a Polish upbringing within the framework of Catholicism, the artist intimately experienced societal scrutiny—whether through way of dressing, encountering body shaming, or navigating cultural shifts after moving abroad. These personal encounters inspired a series of seven paintings, each representing women who face societal judgment for their life choices.

 

The series includes women who choose abortion over motherhood, those who prioritize family over career, individuals who pursue non-traditional professions, those who endure body shaming, and those who face judgment for their religious choices. These women, having made conscious decisions and embraced the consequences of their actions, continue to face unwarranted societal commentary. The series began in 2020, a year marked by a pivotal change in Poland's abortion law, which effectively imposed a near-total ban on abortion and prompted thousands of women to take to the streets in protest.

VULVA FIELDS

 

VIDEO AND PUBLIC INSTALLATIONS, SCULPTURES  / ONGOING PROJECT SINCE 2021 

The Vulva Fields project is an ongoing endeavor with the ultimate goal of integrating its creations into nature.

These vulvas symbolize far more than feminist ideals alone; they stand as potent symbols of equality across gender, race, and religion. The Vulva Fields project explores inseparable connection between humanity and the natural world, utilizing wire—symbolic of energy flow—as a conduit between the artist who plants and the viewer who harvests.

 

Embracing a childlike perspective, the project leverages innocence as a lens to dismantle complex social constructs. Children, unencumbered by adult biases, possess a unique clarity in recognizing injustice.
