Agata Ingarden

Agata Ingarden’s artwork stems from a fascination with the industrial materials and machinery she encountered at construction sites, a place she frequently visited with her architect father as a child in post-communist Poland. Informed by these experiences, Ingarden’s installation, sculpture and video works both investigate the space where the systems surrounding us, both social and manufactured, collide with nature, and explore the relationship between humans and their inventions.  Employing organic materials as a means to challenge this complex relationship, Ingarden’s work attempts to reconcile human and non-human elements, creating coherent environments where our inventions, technology and organic processes are interdependent.
