Tasha Katsuba is a Belarusian artist working at the intersection of fashion and art. In 2021, she moved from Belarus to Ukraine, and in the spring of 2022, due to the war, she moved to Poland. She now lives and works in Gdansk. Active participant of exhibitions since 2015. Until 2020, she was engaged in painting, experimenting with different materials and forms. At the same time, the dominant element in painting was epoxy resin. In 2020, her priority is working with textiles and costumes. In 2021, she created her fashion brand Katsuba. The main aspect of her creativity is the exploration of autobiographical narratives and codes. In Tasha Katsuba's works, conceptual schemes are dominated by categories of the emotional and personal, for which she often employs a diary-style narrative and explores the world of relationships with herself or the audience. Through the personal, she addresses themes of violence, death, traumatic geopolitical events, loneliness, gender and corporeality, ecology, and ethnography. The sharp transition to costume creation is not accidental: in addition to a sincere interest in material and form when constructing clothing, the artist also has a desire to turn the unfolding events into a theatrical spectacle and "deny violence in its reality".

The residence is organized by the platform and space in Poznań, with the support of the foundation, the German Federal Foreign Office and the Civil Society Cooperation. Residence manager: . We thank Sarmen Beglarian and Biuro Wystaw in Warsaw, Zhora Minec, Denis Soldatov, Marсin Jasiński and the Staromiejski House of Culture in Warsaw for their assistance in preparing the residence.
