Kaja Upelj’s practice derives from altering the individual’s experience of glass. Reshaping our perception of the material through capturing and conveying glass in its most fundamental essence and the impression of fluidity. Oscillation of luminous and iridescence in artist’s work indicates a duality of our perception of the surroundings, evoking a question of our experience and understanding of the world. The form and mystical nature of the work resembles the ideology, defining lines supports the reality. Kaja’s art acknowledges the existence of the ideology and the accompanying threat of its ubiquity in today’s society. She believes that the world we perceive fails to be a true reality unless we start questioning the ideological daily fragments; false ideas, we voluntarily agree to follow. We subconsciously shape the issues of the world, while believing we are forming objective decision, which are often result of manipulated information from our surroundings.
