Jakub Woynarowski

BORN 1982, Stalowa Wola

Jakub Woynarowski was born in 1982 in Stalowa Wola. He studied at the Graphic Arts Department and the Interdepartmental Mixed Media Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. He is a multifaceted artist – he makes drawings, graphic art, comics, art books, and installations, and also curates and initiates projects. The most important field of his interests is history – anything alternative, beyond the canon, unexplained, or hard to access. His work weaves artistic practice, theoretical reflection, and independent academic research in an organic fashion. His project analyzing the symbolism of the canopy of Józef Piłsudski's tomb, created in conjunction with the Architecture Institute, represented Poland at the Architecture Biennale in Venice in 2014. Woynarowski also won the Polityka Magazine Award Paszport Polityki in 2014.

Description

The works in the foundation's collection come from the Novus Ordo Seclorum series, a visual essay on the roots of modernist art. The artist tackles iconographic motifs appearing in distant centers of European thought, such as 16th-century Nuremberg, Paris during the French Revolution, and Moscow and the October Revolution. Woynarowski's undertaking is an attempt to rewrite the history of the avant-garde. He takes away the pioneering, revolutionary, and scientific quality of Modernist art, inscribing it in the history of magical practices, weaving in Masonic and alchemical threads. The artist also creates a visual atlas to depict iconographic links; the intelligent juxtapositions of various motifs are at once erudite and absurd.
