LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
INGA FALKOWSKA is an interdisciplinary artist. She is a painter, poet, author of art installations “the Fifth Dimension”. Moreover, she is a designer and creator of unique artistic jewelry. Member of Pools Nederlandse Kulturele Vereniging. Inga is the founder of Wherenowhere Art Gallery in Brussels which she has been running for 4 years with her husband Franciszek Falkowski. In the art of Inga Falkowska, we often encounter symbolism and expression. Its purpose is to stimulate the viewer to reflect on human existence. According to the artist, intense industrialization and the achievements of modern technology do not satisfy the emotional needs of people, which makes them increasingly alienated and lost. "Beauty and its oppositional visualization, as superficial elements, cannot be a priority interpretation of work, because the essence of being is a much higher aspect"
ALEKSANDRA ROWICKA is a photographer, dedicated to artistic photography. She focuses on people, emotions, and also on impacts that humans have on the environment. She believes that photography is an objective medium, which allows showing everything without judgment. Photography allows us to ask questions without providing obvious answers and without imposing one-sided interpretations. The 5th Dimension Project explores a combination of photography and art installations of Inga Falkowska. In her works, Aleksandra seeks to provide an additional point of view to a discussed topic. Aleksandra is also passionate about street photography. Focused on everyday life, and human emotions. She often cooperates with musicians, designers, painters, and makeup artists. Her works have been recently exhibited in Brussels. Aleksandra’s works have been published in international magazines.
The 5th DIMENSION PROJECT is a unique combination of installations and photography. By shedding specific light on an object, we give it a specific interpretation, which becomes the 5th dimension of its space. The 5th Dimension addresses topics that require deeper reflection and consideration. Balancing between short term and long term actions, between what is real and artificial. Between what we do and do not understand. It is very important to mention that all installations are built from recycled and second-hand objects. This also strengthens the multidimensional character of works, which gain a new meaning and life by being used in another context. The project is a journey and new works are added regularly and can be found on the Project’s website www.5thdimensionproject.com.
The installations have been created by Inga Falkowska and the photos and graphics by Aleksandra Rowicka.
