A Scotiabank Nuit Blanche independent project with alumna Paulina Wiszowata

Challenging the precious notions of painting and sculpture, I infiltrate the art community by selecting detritus from other artist's work, only to transform it into art-objects and then distribute to the viewer. This ephemerality in my work establishes a dematerializing value system determined by the inter-personal relationships between artist, object, and viewer. Replacing the object with a photograph of this gesture I transform the object into a concept or idea.

By generating an effortless appearance with calculated gestures, I critique the very idea of myself as an artist through self-reflexivity. I see myself as both in and outside of the art community. Through the exchange of objects and ideas I turn individuals into performers and they become my material alongside the objects and ideas.

Paulina is a recent graduate of OCAD U.

Call for artist submissions during Social Justice Week programming Oct 2019.
