Product Description

This zine (aka research journal) was created as a part of Karolina’s residency at Petrohradska kolektiv in Prague. It embodies one of her attempts to explore how ‘matter matters’ in the practices of contemporary art: how artists establish the careful(l) relationships with their materials and create their own methodologies of caring. At the same time, she tried to experiment with the ways of presenting research and let the reader intimately trace it as it was evolving – through various forms of notes, readings, writings, and conversations.

Karolina Rybačiauskaitė (b. 1992) is a researcher currently living between Vilnius and Prague. She studies Ph.D. in Philosophy at Vilnius University, also graduated in History and Theory of Art at Vilnius Academy of Arts. Her research is motivated by the instability of knowledge-making and by searching for the ways to take care of the complex patterns it creates. This involves studying the speculative account of ‘ecology of practices’ proposed by Isabelle Stengers, but also adding to it through various practical engagements with artistic and curatorial reworkings of their matters.
