BIWAKO BIENNALE 2022
in Omihachiman & Hikone
Space has always been swept by cosmic winds that carry us, rock us, train usand lighten us. Indefinitely, carried by a nostalgia for the origins, we despera-tely tend to join this universal harmony by letting ourselves be taken by thesepermanent flows which, slowly, carefully, lead us into a reassuring dance of life.At the edge of the lake, in the reeds, the resting chalice reveal the passage.

…Aliska Lahusen, a Polish artist living and working in Paris, creates paintings and sculptureswhich aim at equilibrium between emptiness filled with tensions and cavities suggesting move-ments. Inspired by Japanese aesthetics and lacquering methods, Aliska Lahusen nevertheless tri-als our perception of traditional materials. She also crosses boundaries between painting andsculpture, which inevitably reveal their primal inspiration: Japanese woodcuts and ceramics. De-licacy and endurance co-habit her pieces side by side, suggesting perhaps that time and its sus-pension are one and that everything will linger, just as everything will eventually disappear. Or isit vanishing right now... in its temporal actuality?… As we contemplate the lustre qualities of the glaze and the richness of the colours in Lahusen’sworks, we also discover an intense depth in these otherwise flat surfaces….

Justyna Tuha defines her artistic expressions with abstract arts.She uses monotypy to achieve sensuality of her artistic works.In monotyping, randomness steered with multilayers introducesus to not fully defined spaces of matrixes, rhythms and registra-tions. discipline of the form decoded by a spontaneous gestureand color as an optical amplifier are the elements of the artisticlanguage, which encourage the viewer to new reflections on ourvisual habits.
