Karolina Bachanek
Polish born audio-visual artist based in Scotland, working mainly in experimental music, moving image and installation.
Leader of Zloto- one-woman experimental electro-punk project.
Multi-layered contexts of my works are derived from socio-political topics, which I like to analyze through the lens of banal, individual stories of people around me. This interest emerged from my personal experience of migration, which particularly sensitized me to the problem of consumerism and social disintegration.
Rooted in kitsch and punk aesthetic making reference to popular culture of the lowest grade is my trademark. In my opinion this crude and unceremonious visual language is one of the best source of sociological knowledge about people.
Besides, I am very attracted to the subjects of spirituality and devotional objects. The cheaper the better.
