Spotlight: Maciek Kryński
My name is Maciek Kryński and I'm 21-year-old Eastern European artist raised in Poland, based in London and Warsaw, fascinated by performance, live art, experimental&musical theatre, acting and music CSM student - (BA) Performance: Design and Practice. I highly regard the idea of contradictions and takes pleasure in realising the complexity of things. Nothing is simple and no borders are conspicuous. I enjoy immersing myself in the world of blurred barriers between ascesis and hedonism, austerity and lustre, minimalism and abundance. In my works, I’m trying to explore unnoticed oppositions underpinning various phenomena. My works are strongly rooted in the colourful realm of the 2000s I grew up surrounded by Britney’s music, sun reflected by the multi-storey blocks and people enjoying life in the post-communist world. In "Body Comparative" series, I deconstruct seen reality, showing it through the prism of my experience by juxtaposing inanimate objects with body. The selection of items is not random. The connection between photos is strongly connected on ideational level, making a strong stance and sending clear message to its recipient.
