The project aims to investigate the herbal medicine practices of the ethnic inhabitants of Pomerania – the Slovincian people. As part of the residence, I would like to focus on the idea of “social sculpture” and “living sculpture”, thus commemorating not just a single individual, but an ethnic group with the help of herbs that are grown in home gardens. The creative process will involve talks with local residents and consultations with the Museum of the Slovincian Countryside in Kluki and the Museum of Pomeranian Folk Culture in Swołów. I believe that the project will commemorate the former inhabitants of the region, as well as showing that the land that used to be divided and fought for can now connect. The land in question requires care and attention beyond divisions. /Joanna Dudek/
Joanna Dudek is a visual artist working in the areas of spatial installation, painting and design. In her work, she deals with corporeality, as well as exploring the relationship between Psyche and Soma, and the one between man and nature. This variety of pursuits makes the artist particularly meticulous in her selection of materials and their properties. She perceives holism as the unity of body, Psyche, spirit and nature. Currently, she is an assistant lecturer at the Faculty of Interior Design, a member of the “Climate Plateau” which is an initiative co-organized by Galeria Propaganda in Warsaw, in 2020 she was awarded the “Web Culture” Scholarship by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage; in 2019 she participated in the Summer School at Bauhaus Universitat.
