An ‘Isla’ embodies a new, yet transformed area. Where all systems are the result of socio-ecological disaster. Those who reach the island are in fact survivors of the wreckage, be it physical, ecological or cultural. Their dysfunctional remains are the basis for the creation of islands, which are themselves the result of a process of adaptation by the exiles, of separation from civilisation with its legal system, and of phenomena such as climate catastrophe, technological overdevelopment, moral relativism, sociological and urban problems.

Temporary Domestication










Series of objects and 3D graphics oscillating around the topic of individual comfort in relation to unknown space and matter, 2021 - ongoing
silicone, metal wires, clay, sand, latex, rope, found objects


The idea was born during summer art residency Flow on the Vistula river organised by Pamoja Art Foundation. We have stayed a few nights on a desert island where I investigated human behaviour in a wild environment with unfavorable, uncomfortable conditions.

The unknown environment and the lack of a sense of security accompanying the individual’s meeting with it evoke the primary fear. If an individual confronts it and does not respond by escaping, a need arises to establish a relationship with this space and intervene in it.

Such a process, triggered by the desire to know, domesticate strangeness and create a safe point of reference in it, increases the feeling of closeness and constructs new spatial habits. It leads to the creation of relationships and emotions that allow the domestication of space, giving it an identity and finally satisfying the original need for stability.

The individual components - the installation reference points, refer with their severity to the activation of the existence of the individual (activities performed) and the basic architectural structures.
