Ada Kobusiewicz lives and works as a freelance artist in Austria and Poland. She works as media and installation artist with analogue and digital media.
Her work moves between research, science and experiment, focusing on “neglected” environments, transitory spaces and the relationship between their individual and collective statements. The artistic-theoretical background of her work is the examination of space, movement, light. From a sociological perspective she is interested in the relationship between the individual and the collective, and how this is affected by, and reflected in, our perceptions of the urban landscape. Her installations are created mainly in public space to make art more accessible to all. In this way it is possible for the Artist to move beyond mere social commentary and become an active participant in shaping the urban environment by stimulating passers-by to reflect on topics that they otherwise might not engage with. I see this as a necessary evolution from the 19th Century White Cube concept of the “institutionalised” presentation of art to one that is more relevant to the 21st Century.
In the creative process the main element for Ada is to introduce or even to set the work in motion. Her concept of work is always connected with dynamics and movement. Kinetic images are the inspiration for her works.
