Iza Tarasewicz Moult

“I bring out of memory the numerous movements that I once thought to be completely insignificant. At present I apply them in totally new ways of plaiting a complicated braid. What I once felt as wandering astray has a clear contour and significance now.” The above words from the correspondence with Iza Tarasewicz get to the core of her current work. Iza points out interesting interpretative tools, which come in handy since her art seems even more enigmatic than before.

Tarasewicz observes that her current activity is determined by her previous pursuits. She sheds light onto the hard shoulders of the roads she used to take and derives most of her ideas from there. This is, then, at the same time a work that takes stock of all she has accomplished so far, but from the perspective of a roadside, seen from a distance, with the intention that the refuse found on the way should be treated as valuable hints. This is not only a technical issue but proves that a more serious transformation has taken place. Namely, Iza, who has so far used organic materials because of the clearly defined topic of violence, has now unquestionably succumbed to the charm of matter and is inspired by it. Having worked out a language which she has mastered with her unfailing intuition, Iza shows that she is able to use this language to touch upon things that have so far been located in the margins and have only been intuited by her.

The sculptures and objects are arranged in puzzling configurations that make up subtle, personal confessions. The emergence of one being from another, the parallel unfolding of many narratives and the intertwining of various senses, layers, elements, and perspectives are imperceptible yet extremely significant processes. Iza seems to be suggesting that the subcutaneous activity of reality imperceptibly leads to changes of identity, while what gets revealed as new as a result of processes, contains within itself also forgotten marginalia.
