JULIA TASZYCKA

The main field of my artistic interests concerns the revealing or establishing of the formal and aesthetical relations between disciplines of art and sport. For the last few years I’ve built images, arranged objects and have produced video-performances related to the idea that abstract rules governing the field of sport may also serve as an useful allegorical reference for any activity taken in the world of art. The sense of competition, the notion of purpose as well as pure uselessness in the contemporary art scene may be deconstructed or taken apart with tools derived from the rigorous research of the formal and aesthetical aspects of sports. This in some ways almost rhetorical juxtaposition of elements combines study of sports’ rules as well as visual planes and details forming the universum of meanings transposed to the domain of artistic practices and interventions.
