Katarzyna Krakowiak's project poster

Katarzyna Krakowiak presents an 'architectural and linguistic structure' at the Pavelló Mies van der Rohe

The experiment, born out of the confinement, is the result of the contribution of hundreds of people from all over the world.

It all Begins With One Word. Choose your own is the innovative experiment that can be visited from July 23rd in the Pavelló Mies van der Rohe, a "structure both architectural and linguistic", in the words of those in charge, and which bears the signature of the artist Katarzyna Krakowiak. Curated by Marcin Szczelina, the artist's initiative transforms the pavilion into a space for research into a new language of architecture and a new architecture of language. The presentation text reads: "Krakowiak composes an architecture that speaks, not only with words, but also with the spaces between them that open up a territory of critical research on architecture, language, our current and future community; a space of diversity and difference".

The artist's sound composition was born out of the situation of confinement, and there are contributions from hundreds of people around the world who recently sent in a word and a brief explanation of why they had chosen that word. The result is a wide variety of languages, words that the participants want to last. The first iteration of the project will take place in Barcelona and online. The composition will then travel to the Royal Academy of Arts in London and other cities.

Born in 1980, Polish artist Katarzyna Krakowiak creates sculptures, sounds, sound compositions and situations, all with the aim of finding languages to describe architecture.
