Agata IngardenBORN 1994, Kraków
Agata Ingarden was born in 1994 in Kraków. She graduated from École des Beaux-Arts de Paris, and studied also at Cooper Union School of Art in New York. She creates sculptures, objects and installations which combine industrial materials (metal, silicone) with natural ones: wood, sugar, oyster shells, beeswax, or butterflies preserved in salt. Her complex multipart installations are often supplemented with narrative elements such as sound and video. Agata Ingarden’s practice can be seen as a commentary on ambiguous relationships between nature and technology in the age of Anthropocene – or maybe even a vision of a post-apocalyptic world without humans. The artist lives and works in Paris.
