Michał Budny

BORN 1976, Leszno

Michał Budny uses cardboard and paper to create formally ascetic objects modelled upon real-life artefacts, the space surrounding them, and the phenomena filling them. Due to their material modesty and handmade quality, Budny's work exude a home-like air of emotional closeness, investing that which previously could be regarded as empty space with form and meaning. Budny is a graduate of a fine arts high school and has no academic degree in art, which has not prevented him from pursuing an interesting creative path. His work have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, e.g. Prague Biennale (2005), Triennale Kleinplastic Felbach (2007), or Manifesta 7 (2008).

Description


“Budny’s works are a sort of ‘visual haiku’, an extremely essential, rigorous type of poetry encapsulated in an austere geometric form stripped of any redundant elements,” writes Jakub Banasiak about the artist’s work. Urban Composition follows this poetic pattern: “Wall, street, passage, corner, offset, division, sequence, architecture. A sequence of vertical elements, connected at a straight angle, forms an essential study of urban space. As in a classic labyrinth, walls do not divide space between the exterior and interior but determine the possible direction of movement – always alongside a wall that demarcates the street. The delicate colour differentiation of the individual Urban Compositions and the visible constructional ‘stitches’ shift our attention from the macro to the micro, corresponding with the differentiation of details  and colours on urban facades,” we read in the monographic work Michał Budny (Warsaw 2009).
