  • An installation inside the renowned Wolskie Rotundy gasometer in Warsaw
  • A symbiosis of art and architecture
 

Danuta Karsten’s oeuvre is characterized by large-scale architectural interventions. Her installations, both monumental and delicate, take an enormous amount of time and effort to complete. Most of them exist only for a limited time, and photographic documentation, notes, and memories are all that remains of them. Places that are far removed from traditional art venues form their natural habitat: factories, churches, catacombs, mines . . .

The meaning of Danuta Karsten’s art resides in its relation to the surrounding architectural space. As spectators move around in it, their perception of the building changes.

This book spotlights Danuta Karsten’s installation Stałość w ulotności [constancy in volatility|permanence in transience] exhibited at Warsaw’s historic Wolskie Rotundy gasometer in summer 2020. The work, consisting of transparent plastic tubes filled with air; took up the entire space inside the gasometer. It was true to the artists signature approach, which is frequently based on accumulated materials, repetition, and seriality. The installation’s fragile, moving lines formed a stark contrast to the rigid walls, throwing into relief the cylindrical shape of the solid brick structure.
