LiTE-HAUS is pleased at the return of Ewelina Makosa for her second exhibition here - a bold, multimedia installation.
“When we used to have fun” shows her artworks in a form of artifacts and a animation marked by the trace of human existence with a reference to the times we live in. In her art, Polish artist Ewelina Makosa deals with the problem of memory and socio-cultural conditions. She thinks that objects have complex relationships to humans, which results in divisive social values and ideals. The memory of what an object is can be fulfilled as long as anyone remembers what they were used for. That is why Makosa tries to recall objects which are forgotten or unuseful.
The presented artifacts in this installation are mostly elements from a children’s playground such as: fragments of a carousel, sand, umbrellas bases overgrown with moss, and an animation which refers to the strength of nature. These are elements which were present during the artist's childhood but also refer to the current reality.
Born in 1986 in Warsaw, Poland. Makosa is an interior architect and visual artist, based in Warsaw and Berlin. In 2012 she graduated with honors from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw with a Master’s Degree in Interior Architecture. In 2019 she did her PhD at the University of Arts in Poznan, Poland in the faculty of Media Art under the supervision of professor Leon Tarasewicz. Between year 2012-2016 she was a PhD student of Painting Studio Faculty of prof. Leon Tarasewicz at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.
