About the artist:
Catherine Czacki is an artist, writer, musician, and educator of Polish/Tatar and American descent living in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Czacki’s practice incorporates ceramics, metal, paper mache, found objects, fabric, wood, eco resin, painting, drawing, critical theory, poetry, and sound. Czacki’s art has been exhibited nationally and internationally at galleries and museums including Sculpture Center in Long Island City, JOAN in Los Angeles, Best Practice in San Diego, Prague Biennale, and Museo Centro De Arte Pepe Espaliú, Córdoba, Spain. Czacki’s poetry, essays, and academic writing have been published by Line Script Diary, Haunt Journal of Art at UC Irvine, and Interactions Journal of Education and Information Studies at UCLA. A full length book of Czacki’s poetry and images titled Creosote was published in 2019. Czacki’s scholarly work intersected de/anti/post colonial studies with thinking through terminologies imposed on artists that can limit the understanding of artistic and social roles in communities, such as the term outsider. Additional fields of study are gardening, DIY repairing and building, herbalism, human, animal, plant, material relationships, organic communities, everyday histories or folklores and the diasporic and wide traveling evil eye which intersects with Czacki’s own familial past.
