2018 | Aluminum, Paint | Variable dimensions | courtesy of the artist
We are extremely excited to be able to include this beautiful and impeccable work by Przemek Pyszczek in this year’s auction. The artist has generously donated this monumental sculpture made of light-weight aluminum and hand brushed colours. Heavily influenced by the architectural and civic structures from his birth place Białystok in Poland, Pyszczek has built a colourful and expansive sculpture that simultaneously captures a childhood nostalgia for his birth place that is fractured by his upbringing in Winnipeg.
Through architecturally inspired sculptures, installations and paintings Pyszczek’s work traces Poland’s transition since the fall of the iron curtain and also serves as an ongoing journey to rediscover his own past. He obtained his Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Manitoba in 2007. Pyszczek’s work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, most recently presenting a solo exhibition at Plug In ICA, Winnipeg and Galerie Derouillon, Paris. His work has been included in Forever Never Comes, Museo Archeologico e d’Arte della Maremma, Grosseto, Italy; 1989 Belenius, Stockholm; Sandomir, Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles; Industrius, Window Gallery, Winnipeg; Building Systems, Berthold Pott, Cologne; and Corporalitas, Open Forum, Berlin.
