Inside/outside: Reveries, a collaboration between Abu Dhabi-based artists Kasia Dzikowska and Sharon Lindenfeld, was created while in isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. The artworks explore the experience of lockdown and the yearning to connect with the world beyond one’s window.
Kasia Dzikowska’s work represents an emotional connection to the static visual landscape unfolding in her restricted space. In each piece, her reception of this landscape changes, depending on her levels of worry This work is created as mixed media pieces in acrylic, watercolour, plexiglass and MDF, intended for presentation as a multipiece installation. Thus, the viewer of Inside/outside: Reveries will have the experience of looking through window panels, a constant barrier to the outside world at that moment in history.
