Kama Sokolnicka’s works take various forms, from collages, objects or interventions in space to sculpture. Her working method is characterized by montage, which she sees as a conceptual process that she applies to materials as contrasting as fabric, wood, texts, songs and ideas, metal, plaster etc. She directs her attention to the austerity of objects and language and employs her materials correspondingly. This approach of formal reduction permitting many diverse interpretations is characteristic of Sokolnicka’s artistic practice. The technique of montage also allows her to create links between art and various fields of scientific research, e.g. sleep science, communication, botany, astronomy etc., and to discover great poetic force in the places where these disciplines overlap.
