Przemysław Jasielski

jasielski (1)

Przemysław Jasielski, Master of Fine Arts, artist based in Poznan, Poland combining art with science and technology. He creates installations, objects, drawings and photographs.

In the creative process he approaches work with the attitude of an engineer, adapting the precise planning and scientific research, with the main focus on the conceptual content.

Many of these works explore rituals of the everyday reality taking up a specific game with the imagination and wisdom of a viewer, with his/her habits shaped by daily routine of the contemporary world and his/her own presence in it. Most of them are both in close relation to the space and interactive – the spectator is allowed to play with them or even to change their shape. His works confront the actual present reality with its transformation to allow the viewer to observe it in a new, fresh way. They often try to take actions commonly seen as impossible, useless or ineffective. Also, they usually contain a specific, critical sense of humour.

Jasielski took part in several exhibitions all over the world – among others, one man shows such as Paper Bridge Over Stone Water at Tokyo Wonder Site (Tokyo, Japan, 2012), Analog Immigration at CSU Galleries (Cleveland OH, USA, 2013), and group shows – Apparat. Retrogression Through Technological Progress at The Sculpture Center (Cleveland OH, USA, 2016), L’arte differente: MOCAK al MAXXI at MAXXI (Rome, Italy, 2016), Not To Be Seen. The Nemesis of the Technological Progress at WRO Art Center (Wroclaw, Poland, 2017), and Draft Systems at WRO Media Art Biennale (Wroclaw, Poland, 2017).
