Kasia Ozga was born in Warsaw, Poland shortly before the declaration of martial law. After living in Berlin, Springfield, Glenview, Boston, and Krakow, she now works between Paris and Chicago. Ozga creates public artworks and sculptural installations in a variety of materials for both interior and exterior spaces. Her works depicts the changing relationship between the human body and our environment either directly, through the use of organic materials intentionally affected by weather conditions over time, or indirectly, via visual metaphors for the experience of time. She has designed everything from permanent interactive landscapes to temporary time based installations out of materials ranging from bread to pixels to bronze. The conceptual goals and environmental contexts of each piece influence the materials which Ozga selects. Ozga is a former Kosciuszko Foundation Fellowship recipient, Harriet Hale Woolley Grant recipient from the Fondation des Etats-Unis and Young Professional Artist Travel Grant recipient from the Polish Ministry of Culture grantee. Her work has been exhibited in 5 states in the USA and in 10 countries.
