Karolina Zaborska

Works on the borderline of media and discipline. Specializes in collage and photomontage techniques, often combining them with painting, animation, or video. Thoroughly observes and analyses features of contemporary city agglomerations. Assesses them
and predicts their depressing future. In her works, she accumulates themes of contemporary urban and industrial reality. By combining them in an alternative way, she obtains the effect of unreality. The message conveyed in this way becomes universal and timeless.
