Participant Profile

Karolina Grzywnowicz


Karolina Grzywnowicz is a visual artist whose work bridges contemporary art, research, and activism. Her works deal with plants in social and political context, often of a violent nature. Karolina perceives landscape as a living archive in which traces of past events are recorded. Her practice explores the power of seemingly unnoticed gestures to resist oppression, and she is currently exploring scent as a tool of micro resistance and healing. Through a variety of media, including installation, sculpture, and public interventions, she creates spaces and situations that encourage viewers to engage with these issues in new and thought-provoking ways. Karolina currently resides in Berlin, Germany.
