Friday 28 July
18.00 Opening of Bartosz Janczak’s Sculpture in front of Rae Culture Center
18:30 Introduction of Bartosz Janczak’s art at the Rae Culture Center
Bartosz is a designer with a decade of experience, recently escaping from the computer screen into public spaces, where he’s creating sculptures. He is originally from Poland, but lives and works mostly in London.
His structures are inspired by military defense structures, brutalist architecture and eastern block monuments. His objects are aggressors, they are tearing apart the air with it’s edges, other times they are bonded in a deadlock. Visually his art is very raw in it’s approach and posture. Heavy, blocky shapes interact with each other, intertwined in light and soft-spoken compositions. Always white, gives the audience a resemblance of antique in an almost spiritual experience.
During a stay at Copper Leg Art Residency, he is focused on creating a monument of devotion for the new world’s society. Inspired by mythology and a vast variety of Estonian beings, deities and legendary heroes he decided to create an altar responding to moods of modern civilization and it’s abstract world of manufactured needs.
Friend of Bartosz, half-Catalan, and semi-German, lives and works near Barcelona. Kim is also a sculptor, but this time supporting friend Bartosz as an assistant and engineer of his sculpture built during Cooper Leg Residency. Kim mainly is focusing on his art on working with wood, metal, and stone.
Everyone is welcome to open the sculpture at the Rae Cultural Center on Friday 18.00!
