Industria 3. What is essential is invisible to the eye

In this series of works, the artist interprets the industrial heritage of places that grew up around the heavy industry, mainly in Upper Silesia. The embroidery that appears in her work - elements of folk art - refers to women coming along with the men who moved to Silesia and worked very hard there. The task to create a home was on those women’s shoulders; they also brought with them what we now call non-material culture: customs, traditions, and folk art. The artist embroiders photos of industrial monuments photos on fabric.


The embroidery is inscribed into the walls, the machines, and the fences of places once bustling with life, becoming in that way a record of the intersection of two intertwining worlds, inventing a magical space of an unreal world, created by years of coexistence.
