JULIA TASZYCKA

In my artistic practice I deal with themes related to the notion of game, occurring both in the world of art and beyond it, as a domain functioning in opposition to the rules governing the real world (after Arthur C. Danto’s notion of Real World). I understand the notion of game here as an extension of the field of a kind of fiction, a conventional area within which the roles and laws that sustain the functioning of the everyday world are suspended. 
I am also interested in the tension between formalism and conceptualism: in creating objects and spatial installations which, while preserving their formal aspects, would not lose their conceptual layer. My artworks take on a spatial character (site specific) as well as objects situated in the area of post-readymade art.
