Aleksandra Pollner

Gleaning: Table


Description/

Aleksandra Pollner’s Gleaning collection emerged out of the discarded Styrofoam she began collecting on ritual morning walks during lockdown. These elevated, striking pieces involve historical methods of papier-mâché and newer ideas of circular design to explore our shifting relationship with objects and the environment.

Aleksandra Pollner sets her work within the language of art and design, a dual belonging that reflects her personal history and a fascination in borders. Having had to flee Communist Poland with her family led her on a long journey of uprooting, border crossings and living on the periphery. The underpinnings of her work are reflections on perimeters, historical residues, and moments which elicit an experience of shared humanity beyond boundaries, political systems, or culture. She utilizes the object as a function of a commodity culture and its value systems. The infiltration of the object into the domestic space, as the one unifying universal experience of the private and intimate, allows for an excavation and creation of new principles. Pollner has an MFA in Industrial Design from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Born in Gdansk, Poland, she runs her multi-disciplinary practice out of Portland, Oregon.
