New Maps and Rubbish. Dynamic Forms of Nature - Artist Talk with Joanna Zdzienicka-Obałek

15/05/2024, 18:00 - 20:00, Essen

Save to calendar

From mind-mapping to the final result, Joanna Zdzienicka-Obałek reflects upon her search for artistic methods and field practices of an artist-collector gathering rubbish at Żabie Doły, a nature and landscape protected area at the heart of the Upper Silesian Metropolitan Area. She will give an account of losing orientation and discovering the unexpected in post-industrial landscapes – of the never-ending process of building a collection of artificial matter found in areas grounded in the violences of the Anthropocene – of simply being happy at Żabie Doły!

The talk is chaired by Mateusz Chaberski, assistant professor in the Department for Performativity Studies at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. The co-organisers are Małgorzata Sugiera, current Senior Fellow at the College, and her tandem partner Dorota Sajewska, professor for Theatre Studies at Ruhr University Bochum.
