Honza Zamojski

BORN 1981, Poznań

Zamojski’s work is like a systematic, if somewhat crazy, scientific study. The artist experiments on elements of the art world, such as catalogues, covers; he also engages in 'field research'. His trip to the Czech Republic resulted in the publication of a fictional guidebook/picture album, Jak jsem potkal ďabla. Zamojski often works on books – he works as editor, designer, and publisher in his own micropublishing house, MORAVA. Between 2005-2010, he was a co-founder of the Starter association and gallery. He is a laureate of the Młoda Polska fellowship, privately – a fan of rap, fish, and letters.

Description

“Works on paper: monotypes, drawings, playing with fire and smoke, are a kind of notebook to me, a space where I can afford to make quick and risky moves,” says Zamojski. “I like monotyping, an easy technique but also one that often slips out of control. Printing ink has an organic quality, it reminds me of  resin or tar: it deeply penetrates the structure of the paper. At the same time, it lacks painterly qualities – there are no halftones, no colour spectrum. In this sense, it is the perfect medium for me. The monotype created on the cover of a Patricia Highsmith book is precisely the effect of such a typical, quick and laconic, procedure,” he adds.
