Kathryn Zazenski is a visual artist who explores the malleability of perception and connection through art-making, writing, lecturing, and community building. Her work Untitled (2016) is from a series of images she created while working in collaboration with physicists and astronomers at the University of Warsaw, Department of Experimental Physics and CAMK (the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center) during her first Fulbright grant (2015-2016). Human nature paradoxically encompasses the need for rationalization and the desire to be seduced. Similarly, this work was informed by both formal research and mundane observations, as well as inspirations stemming from theoretical physics, the cosmos, Traditional Chinese Medicine, to the popularization and appropriation of Eastern spirituality, lifestyle blogs, and reality TV. Through quotidian materials like water, plastic, mirror, and glass, her work is rooted in our evolving relationship to space, fact, fiction, and the stories and moments of awe that make up our everyday experiences. Zazenski has participated in international artist residencies and has exhibited her work internationally at institutions, such as the San Diego Art Institute (California, USA), the Zachęta National Gallery of Art (Warsaw, Poland), and the Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw and Vilnius. Zazenski received her MFA in Sculpture from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and is a two-time Fulbright Fellow to Poland, where she is the Managing Director of Stroboskop Art Space and creator of The Haptic Mind. Zazenski is also a visiting lecturer at Dartmouth College (NH, USA) and she currently lives between the US and Poland.
