About works

Godzina's strongly existential and committed work departs from autobiographical elements, as well as observations she makes during walks of urban situations or the convergence of objects in time and space. Her work is animistic in nature, conceiving of matter as an active substance. In the installations she presents, the in situ qualities of the exhibition space play an important role, as well as the fluidity between objects, time, space, sound and movement.
