Astrolabium at the Pavilion of Human Passions in the Parc du Cinquantenaire
As early as the 8th century, astrolabium was used to determine the location. It was used as a navigation tool in shipping by Arabian navigators. Looking at the sky was as tempting then as it is now, the desire to look deeper and further. Thanks to the insights gained, we are able to reach beyond symbolic borders, which, like the event horizon, separate the observer from the information. Again, we incline our heads to try to guess what lies beyond the horizon, in a black hole.
In addition to being a visual and intermedial artist, Katarzyna is an academic teacher. In her artwork, she is inspired by science, and first and foremost, astronomy.
