Łukasz JastrubczakBORN 1984, Zielona Góra
A graduate from the academy of Fine Arts in Katowice in 2009, he makes intermedia art whose dominant motif is perception. Cinematography is an ongoing source of inspiration for Jastrubczak: “films are part of my life, my world, they are a lens through which I perceive the world.” The artist constructs objects that make sly reference to film titles and arranges situations in which reality begins to behave according to the logic of a film narrative. He and Finnish artist Markku Peltola are interested in a legend of outsider art: Edmund Monsiel. Over several years their collaboration has born fruit in a range of objects (including two films), through which the artists explore various states of sensory perception.
He has been working with Krzysztof Kaczmarek as the Krzysztofjastrubczakłukaszkaczmarek art group since 2010. He lives in Szczecin, where he lectures at the local art academy.
