1/8, Górnicki, I.S.
The artist uses corporeality to talk about feelings because he believes that gesture is able to say more than words. In the sculpted nudes he tries to go beyond aesthetic form and tell a story, often difficult and painful, sometimes soothing and empowering. “Beauty is tantamount to loss,” as Cormac Mccarthy wrote, and in Górnicki’s sculptures just below the surface of beauty, one can find nostalgia and sadness caused by the inevitable passage of time. To emphasize this passage of time, the artist began to destroy his works, breaking them, crumbling and burning them. He allowed chance into the creative process. Looking at the cracked forms, the shells of his sculptures, one can conclude that loss can also be a gift.
One of the most interesting and talented sculptors currently working. He was born on 01.11.1986. He graduated with honors from the Department of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw in 2010 in the studio of Janusz Antoni Pastwa. His interests revolve around realism, his leitmotif is physicality, a vehicle that brings in the symbolic world, a route towards archetypes. His urban activities provoke questions and never leave the viewer indifferent. It uses the language of symbols, mainly religious, philosophical and psychological.
