Aleksandra Sidor

I am working across media in painting, text, sound, sculpture, photography, installation and video. My work explores themes of sensitivity, morality, ethicality, individual and collective trauma. My interest in the creation of wide range of work is motivated by the possibility of exploring different perceptions and the potential of various forms of audience participation. 

 

I am interested in the idea of the investigation of consciousness, awareness and empathy. The pieces that I made were very often based on different writings on psychoanalysis and inspired by social, cultural and political transformations.

My paintings often depict transformative encounters of bodies with other beings. This point of connectivity as well as manipulated proportions , test the power relations of the subjects.

The intentions behind my art are usually connected with the therapeutic aspects of experiencing art. However, having in mind the specificity of the works that I created, I am unable to predict all the possible reactions to it. I value and learn from feedback and I consider it an important part of my artistic practice.
