KAROLINA PATEREK
DOCTOR OF FINE ARTS, ARCHITECT

          

I have balanced my career in both art and design practice with a multidisciplinary approach to both. Founding myself deeply passionate and engaged in art I devoted my time to Phd in Fine Arts. Creating artworks I use multiple artistic means. Next to paintings and sculptures my portfolio includes  projects related to broadly understood space design, I created experimental installations that utilise light and colour to augment our perception of space. The installations were exhibited in Germany, Austria and Poland.
A NEW PLANET
The artistic installation “New Planet” is related to growing problem of pollution caused by plastic wastes, which is changing our environment for ever before our eyes. This direct threat has become tangible enough to affect live of people and uncountable amount of leaving creatures has already been killed by the wastes of our generation.
Affected by temperature increase, plastics are taking organic shapes, similar to the forms of living organisms. Remains of plastic containers are almost identical to the remains of animals. Except plastic wastes, rotating sculpture also contains fragments of animal’s skeletons which are hard to distinguish from synthetic polymers debris.
