Karolina Ferenc is an artist and designer interested in all aspects of anthropocentrism and the Anthropocene. She uses design as a tool to question and speculate about a contemporary relationship between the human and naturalized, emotional or feminine Other.
Her projects question our uniqueness as a specie and trace unexpected, often intimate connections in human/nonhuman interactions. The narration of her works weaves between scientific facts, para-fiction and imaginary speculation.
In 2016, Karolina Ferenc graduated in Social Design from the Design Academy Eindhoven/Netherlands with a nomination for the Gijs Bakker Award. Most recently, her project My Neighbour Tree is exhibited as a part of Design Biennial BIO 25: Faraway, So Close in Ljubljana/Slovenia. She works between Warsaw/Poland and Amsterdam/Netherlands.
She is a fellow through the »New Networks« project, a cooperation of Akademie Schloss Solitude and the Center for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw, with financial support by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw.
