Michal Martychowiec Wikipedia
Michal Martychowiec (born 1987) is a contemporary artist. He creates conceptual series of photographs, films, drawings, neons, objects, and mix-media installations and environments. He was awarded Distinction in MA Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. He is a visiting lecturer at the Russian Institute of History of Art (Russian Academy of Sciences) in St. Petersburg and China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. He lives in Berlin.
Michal Martychowiec’s oeuvre is structured through a mix media practice with existential basis. The conceptual framework of his installations explores concepts of history, historic narratives, and consequently foundation of cultural symbols and archetypes. Through these Martychowiec constructs an individual artistic language and narratives. His practice sources ideas from philosophy (both oriental and occidental), history, history of art, history of religion, literature, contemporary culture and communication.
Once established, elements of his projects become symbolic entities which reoccur later on. Thus, his work is organised through a system of multiple narratives:
those which follow the line of thought of individual object-based projects, and those structured using reenacted symbolic elements already created by him in the past.
The latter is realised through a series of self-curated presentations.
