Łukasz Jastrubczak

With the help of his exhibitions and particular works, Łukasz Jastrubczak builds a multi-level structure. In his work, he confronts popular cinema (especially science-fiction) with the aesthetics of avant-garde movements, testing their mythology. Łukasz’s works are left in the desert and in the forest, they float up into the sky or are sent by post, where they become deformed. He collaborates with imaginary characters and uses psychokinetic powers to create his sculptures. He usually makes use of cheap materials, and by the same token, ones which are not durable, thanks to which his works can be thought of as being part of the prestidigital and alchemical tradition of “activities using everyday objects”.
Łukasz plays on synthesizer in "Boring Drug" band. Since 2012 he has been coordinating "Times New Arial Museum". With Sebastian Cichocki he is working on a book titled "Mirage", that will be published on the end of 2012. Jastrubczak presented his solo shows in Bunkier Sztuki in Krakow, CCA Kronika in Bytom, Art in General in New York, BWA Zielona Góra, Sabot Gallery in Cluj-Napoca, and Galeria Pies in Poznan. He lives in Krakow.
