Working from her home - a farm in the small village of Koplany in Eastern Poland, artist Iza Tarasewicz (B.1981) utilizes raw materials and rural systems of production to create complex spatial installations that draw connections between cellular, social, agricultural, and celestial interactions.
At Tramway Tarasewicz traces her own agricultural origins, creating a new body of work inspired by folk traditions and the circular relationships between protest, farm labour, dance, rhythm, and collectivity in rural communities. This expansive installation consists of fragments of retro agricultural machines that have fallen out of use, abandoned as the chain of modern production has shifted due to progressing ecological catastrophe or as with the current situation in Ukraine, War. Re-invigorated in the gallery, they form their own alternative community and culture, inspired by punk machinery, turbo whirls, folk practices, craft and the cyclical rhythms of rural labour.
This exhibition is accompanied by a new work from Polish dancer and choreographer Pawel Sakowicz, responding to Tarasewicz's work and realised with three Glasgow-based dancers. It will be performed in the gallery space at the preview (Friday 7 October) and on the afternoons of Saturday 22 October and Saturday 5 November.
