Janek Simon

BORN 1977, Kraków

Janek Simon gets inspired by scientific theories and models as well as such disciplines like geography or economics whose functions and specifics are subject to constant civilization changes. Simon's objects often take a form of visualizations based on mathematical formulas and statistical data. At the same time, experimental and anarchical dimension of his works articulates clash between scientific theories and reality of everyday life, sociological phenomena and politics. Many of his art pieces contain complex electronic systems created according to the Do it Yourself philosophy - made from scratch by the artist. Artist, who consciously keeps on searching for practices and strategies alternative to the contemporary culture of mass production and prevailing system of artistic production.

Description

A colourful relief, based on the ornamental fabrics and tapestries of Poland’s Podlasie region, Afghanistan, the Caucasus and of West Africa. It is made of 3D-printed elements forming patterns which Simon plaited with the motives symbolising his earlier works and former girlfriends. Using a visual code, the artist relays his travels and shares with us his artistic and love life. Although sometimes casually arranged, the individual elements create a beautiful and harmonious whole which reveals the artist’s belief that there is “ideal disorder” where harmony does not call for the formatting of individual elements but rather for their re-arrangement.
