“I treat natural elements that can be found in modern public spaces as trophies and notice their additional strength when placed in a manmade context, such as a gallery.” Olga Woszczyna is influenced by the aesthetics of contemporary architecture and goldsmithing. She contemplates the connection between mood, object and place. Along with hunting for raw and rough materials, she is captivated by the beauty of tea matter. Oolong Tea documents original packaging from China. The vacuum compressed materials are presented as golden readymades and illustrations, reflecting Eastern tea culture and modern aesthetics.
