Anna Godzina (b, 1990) lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium. She received her master from Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp in 2019 followed by academic distinctions of Prijs Hugo Roelandt 2019, Prijs Stichting Mathilde Horlait-Dapsens 2019 and STRT Schot prize 2019.
Godzina is interested in notions of sound, movement and time-keeping all as cycles of construction and destruction in an era that is marked by the direction of advanced mechanization. Beyond the aesthetical aspect of her work, she deals with what the object carries in its physical sense: weight, gravity and force. At the same time, she develops her work following the rules of functionality while always embracing the unexpected. Most of her sculptures perform on its own – Godzina exploits the confidence that an engine provides and its ability to repeat sounds and motion patterns, but what also interests her is to discover the errors and ruptures in their controlled movement. She is researching the ability of sound to reshape, unfold and energize our perception of space, looking into the acoustic property of objects and forms that surround us.
