Breathe-in/Breathe-out In Łódź, Poland.

Breathe-in/Breathe-out In Łódź, Poland.

Remember that red-haired aerobics teacher that used to yell loudly over the thumping disco beat while her head-banded spandex army jumped and kicked in unison in front of a mirror at the community center?

“Don’t forget to breeeeeeeaaaath, people! Okay? And 2 and 3 and 4. Good!”

You cannot forget to breath if you are gazing down Piotrkowska Street in Łódź on your average Thursday night either. You will see the slowly pulsing acqua neon sign just installed there reminding you to do that normal thing that you may not pay much attention to.

“Wdech/Wydech”

“Breathe-in/Breathe-out”

The artist duo Supergut Studio (Katarzyna Furgalinska, Lukasz Smolarczyk), have just completed this new public art piece, “throbbing in line with human’s breathing, creating an illusion of synchronization between the neon light and the human organism, ” they say.

Made with old fashioned neon technology instead of the LEDs that are taking over public light fixtures everywhere, this sign is shrouded effectively in the darkness of night despite its proximity to illuminated crossings and traffic. Watching it silently from a distance, it also summons a memory of city life in the past – perhaps your past.

“The idea is to direct the installation’s influence at a single recipient and his individual sense of ‘here and now’,” says the project’s curator Michal Biesynski, who has over the last decade brought a huge number of artists opportunities to paint walls and erect sculpture here in the Polish city.

This new installation in the public sphere may actually be good for citizen’s health, and possibly their peace of mind.

Perplexing the Poles, Mark Jenkins Plays Publicly in Łódź

Perplexing the Poles, Mark Jenkins Plays Publicly in Łódź

“Wanna taste these ramen noodles? They’re really good,” says the woman leaning forward to offer you a fork full of the Japanese food, dangling it over your head.

What?

The ultimate public still life sculptor and installation artist, Mark Jenkins has just positioned this woman on a lamp post in Łódź, Poland as part of Michał Bieżyński’s ongoing curation of his city’s public space.

Jenkins continues to refine his true-to-life interactions, with realistic, if troubling and surreal, figures frozen mid-action. He casts his own body and sometimes others’ bodies, using packing tape and plastic wrap, and then dresses them in unremarkable clothing that is conventional to the culture and environment.

This is a kind of human taxidermy, if you will, with bizarre scenarios invoked by the presence of the life-like figure in public space, implicating passersby into the scene before they even realize it.

Here we have six new installations from Jenkins in and around the city center, throwing people off their daily rhythm. They chuckle uncomfortably and point or snap a photo, slightly picking up the pace when walking by.

BSA Special Feature: From Pakistan: The Writing on the Wall

Deconstructing the psyche of Karachi, through the graffiti on its walls…

The capital of the Pakistani province of Sindh, Karachi is the site of an active ongoing political and social Street Art/graffiti scene. Not typically popping up in conversations of Street Art in so-called western countries of Europe and the US, this scene has a character that you would not necessarily recognize, until you completely recognize it.

Here the battle is for your attention, usually reserved exclusively for political parties and, of course, advertising messages that give a particularly bent view of the world. This documentary looks at the ways artists are using public space and interviews them about their practice, and we find that the same approach to engaging the passerby exists here as well:

“I feel like if you are going to critique power or power structures it is kind of pointless to do it in the gallery… there is something about situating your art in a place that gives it greater meaning, a wider audience, more interactivity while making it .”

“I also wanted to see how a woman’s body would react in a space that is generally more dominated by the male.”

“The works present the state of a nation that is aware of it’s problem but not the solution.”

“Looking at advertisements, one finds interesting stories emerging from the layers of these overlapping messages.”

 “Wrong Weight” Sculpture by Górnicki and Chazme in Łódź

You may have seen our posting on this a short time ago : Times of Tumult Personified in Sculpture by Tomasz Górnicki and Chazme

“Wrong weight”, by sculptors Tomasz Górnicki and Chazme is the sixth in a series of public works around Łódź organized by UNIQA Art Łódź project with Łódź Events Centre. A surprisingly 3-dimensional outgrowth of a successful multi-wall mural program that has brought much attention to the city, you may say that somehow these sculptures contain within them the seeds of Street Art and its discontents.

Title: “wrong weight”
Artists: Tomasz Górnicki | Chazme
Address: Station Boat Station (from al. Family Poznań)
Project: Uniqa art boat

CUMA PROJECT: Walking with the Lenca. Stinkfish, Mazatl and Kill Joy

CUMA Project is an independent Street Art project whose aim is to support popular and indigenous organizations/cultures of Latin America. “In April and May 2016, the street artists Stinkfish, Mazatl and Kill Joy visited the Lenca indigenous communities in the departments of Intibucà and San Francisco Lempira in Honduras”

 

Once for 12 + 1 / Contorno Urbano in Barcelona

“ONCE” Deconstructs and Reconstructs His Tag for 12 + 1 Project In Barcelona was how we described this project in June.

“Influenced by Bauhaus and Russian propaganda posters during the revolution, Catalonia born ONCE says he doesn’t really think that he is using abstract methods of manipulating his text into something unrecognizable. “Although for the general public,” he says, “these are only geometric shapes and they are more likely to think that I am painting with abstraction.” His control of aspects of fine art lettercraft reflects some of that heralded industrial society that was lauded a hundred years ago and it is somehow quite modern as well.”

Times of Tumult Personified in Sculpture by Tomasz Górnicki and Chazme

Times of Tumult Personified in Sculpture by Tomasz Górnicki and Chazme

A dramatically posed, sharply suited figure jostles rather elegantly atop a chaotic groundscape, a deconstructed, geometrical plinth that breaks apart underfoot, lifting his arms and contorting his torso to stay upright as he negotiates the troubled terrain.

The metal pillar below appears to bend and contort under the figure’s weight, unable to withstand pressure from above, an uneasy weakness beneath. Lofted above the street near the recently refurbished Łódź Fabryczna railway station and able to be seen from a long distance, the new sculpture in Łódź, Poland captures one’s eye and draws you nearer to inspect the near-tumbling man.

“Wrong weight”, by sculptors Tomasz Górnicki and Chazme is the sixth in a series of public works around Łódź organized by UNIQA Art Łódź project with Łódź Events Centre. A surprisingly 3-dimensional outgrowth of a successful multi-wall mural program that has brought much attention to the city, you may say that somehow these sculptures contain within them the seeds of Street Art and its discontents.

The “Wrong Weight” title is derived in opposition to the sentiments of permanency and strength expressed by the Roman lyric poet Horace in “Ode 3.30 – More Lasting than Bronze”

Horace, Ode 3.30

Exegi monumentum aere perennnius
regalique situ pyramidum altius,
quod non imber edax, non Aquilo impotens
possit diruere aut innumerabilis
annorum series et fuga temporum.

translated as:

“I have finished a monument more lasting than bronze
and higher than the royal structure of the pyramids,
which neither the destructive rain, nor wild Aquilo
is able to destroy, nor the countless
series of years and flight of ages.”

Chazme and Tomasz Gornicki for UNIQA Art Łódź project in Łódź, Poland. August, 2017. (photo © Michał Bieżyński)

But that is not where we find ourselves now, say the artists of this new sculpture. Rather it is quite the opposite, according to their statement, which we paraphrase here:

“Man and monolith are falling apart in front of our eyes. We do not know whether the base is breaking up causing the fall of the figure, or the figure collapses within itself. the proper mass of its ego absorbed into its surroundings. Both matters interact, one destroying the stability of the other. Impermanence, invalidity, diminishment.”

“The Head of John the Baptist” in a Water Fountain in Łódź, Poland

“The Head of John the Baptist” in a Water Fountain in Łódź, Poland

For a decade we’ve been saying that art in the streets of the modern city lies along a continuum between illegal, autonomous interventions and those that are officially sanctioned by institutions. In today’s posting from Łódź, Poland, we’re much nearer to the latter end of that continuum.

Szymon Ryczek for UNIQA Art Łódź project. Łódź, Poland. June 2017. (photo © Michał Bieżyński)

Part of UNIQA Art Łódź, a public art project that itself has metamorphosed from a multi-year mural program by (primarily) Street Artists on city walls to its current public sculpture program under the direction of Michał Bieżyński, here we have the head of John the Baptist.

Weighted with references to Biblical story of the martyr in spiritual opposition to King Herod and baptism by water, organizers also say that the sculpture commemorates the Jewish victims in Łódź ghettos during a time when their culture and lives were once blossoming, later destroyed by the Occupation of Poland by Nazi Germany. With the decapitated head as a symbol, one also may draw a connection with the highly staged videos circulated in recent years that purport to show hooded ISIS militants beheading people.

Sited on a pedestal in Old Town Park in its central pond, the location is in the part of the city where the Jewish community once settled, and the visual itself may be quite disturbing to viewers as it reflects a mirror image here until the end of the season. The artist Szymon Ryczek is a recent graduate of the Faculty of Graphic Art and Painting, Strzemiński Academy of Art in Łódź and the sculpture is made of epoxy resin dusted with carbon dust.

Previous artists in the sculpture program have included Lump, Etam and Robert Proch, Crystal Wagner, and Mona Tusz. The next project will be a large-scale sculpture by two Warsaw artists Tomasz Górnicki and Chazme at the end of July at the Łódź Fabryczna train station.

Mona Tusz Creates New Relief in Lodz, Poland

Mona Tusz Creates New Relief in Lodz, Poland

Artist Mona Tusz creates a relief mural in Lodz, Poland using stained glass, wood, metal, and custom illumination in her latest esoteric journey of spirit and emotion for this latest creation for UNIQA Art Lodz.

The public art program has been looking for alternatives to the classically painted mural and encouraging artists to experiment with techniques and materials and Tusz’ new work evokes a weightlessness in her new look into a tale told across a submerged and twinkling marine atmospheric.

Here the graduate of the Katowice Academy of Fine Arts takes advantage of a low wide wall to breathe space between floating elements that she hand painted in great detail. Incorporating lighting that is specific to the piece on Gdańska 132 st, night time evokes a celestial and quietly gleaming scene while the stained glass and varied 3 dimensional elements cast shadows and change hue throughout the day movement of the sun across this southern-facing wall.

“The art of Mona in general is characterized by extremely detailed, painted texture, which is barely visible on the photos,” says Michał Bieżyński, Art Director of UNIQA Art Lodz project, but you can see the fine brushwork on the characters if you look closely. All tolled the unique relief approach takes her work in a new direction and lifts the sky toward you.

Etam Crew and Robert Proch Welcome Autumn : “Enjoy The Silence” In Łódź, Poland

Etam Crew and Robert Proch Welcome Autumn : “Enjoy The Silence” In Łódź, Poland

In the northern hemisphere and in dirty Brooklyn the new season of Fall is upon us and in our minds we begin to hear Sinatra’s “Autumn in New York” intermingled with Van Morrison’s “Moondance” under the cover of October skies.  Yet on a hike through the Catskills just north of the city to see the leaves as they turn colors you reach a peak and look down on the rolling hills and the Hudson River below, smell the crisp clean air and listen.

What is that sound?

The buzzing of the city has left you momentarily and there is nothing but silence, spare the rustling of leaves blowing by your boots.

Perhaps this is the kind of silence that Etam Crew and Robert Proch are speaking of in their home country of Poland, which is also enjoying this turn from summer to autumn. Their new mural “Enjoy the Silence” combines the distinctly different styles through a shared palette of earthen tones, with Proch subtly softening the sharp illustrations of Bezt and Sainer with an impressionism that unifies. This is the harvest of three artists who have been working hard on their respective crafts.

Part of the newly branded initiative UNIQA Art Łódź, “Silence” is one of the few murals that will be made in this mural-soaked city as curator Michał Bieżyński slowly moves the focus to sculptural installations in public space.

Happily, BSA has been there since the inception of the Łódź project and we’re pleased that we can continue to partner with Bieżyński to bring BSA readers these exclusive images of the new mural and a fresh new YouTube video of it’s process.

A Tidal Wave of Lodz Reborn: “Lodz Murals” Distinguishes Polish City

A Tidal Wave of Lodz Reborn: “Lodz Murals” Distinguishes Polish City

New work from DalEast, Borondo, Alexis Diaz

“My aim is to create a permanent exhibition of great art in the public space of Lodz,” says Michał Bieżyński, founder of Lodz Murals in the Polish city of the same name. It is highly likely he will after six years curating Galeria Urban Forms, for which BSA has been a media partner. Since 2009 Bieżyński has been selecting and organizing artists from around the world to create almost 45 murals throughout the city for permanent exhibition by people like Os Gemeos, Aryz, Roa, Vhils, M-City, Etam Cru, Inti, Remed, Daleast, Sat One, Kenor, 3ttman, and Nunca to mention just a few.

“Now I don’t want to create any new festival, any new brand – just want to keep the name as simple as possible,” he says of Lodz Murals, an ongoing program that functions year round rather than focusing specifically on a short-term festival. With all responsibilities for organizing, promoting, and working with city and private business under one roof, Michał says that his vision is to create the same sort of iconic image of Lodz with murals as Paris with the Eiffel Tower.

“I would like that people on the global scale would think of Lodz as a city with exceptional public art,” he says grandly while acknowledging that public art shines in many other cities as well. “When you are thinking about public art, one of the first places that you will see in your mind’s eye is Lodz. Of course, comparing the mural project to the one of the most important “pearls” of modern architecture is pure overstatement, but I would like to create this type of mechanism, this type of association.”

Dal East. Lodz Murals. Lodz, Poland. October 2015. (photo © Maciej Stempij)

And he is well on his way with nearly year-round tours of the city’s existing murals by various organizations and more artists currently painting and en route. Is he still committed to inviting top talent artists to Lodz regardless of their fame?

“Yes of course, for me the quality of art is the most important,” he says. “Last year I invited Morik, a great artist from Russia and he was not that famous. His art is just really high-quality, it is as simple as that.” He is thinking in terms of programs – experimental and classical among the themes.

“This year we are doing an amazing project with Cekas – the sculptor from Wroclaw, Poland. He will install almost 1500 metal pieces to the surface of the wall, creating a permanent installation that will work with the sun and it will change depending on the angle of the sunbeams. It’s still something on the wall, but it’s a step forward.”

In the mean time he is in the middle of more pieces and artists and walls that he hopes will become iconic in a Lodz sort of way. “I’ve got the plan, I’ve started to talk with some artists, I’m trying to do my best. Now, we’ve just finished the piece with Daleast (China), Alexis Diaz (Puerto Rico) and Borondo (Spain). I’m waiting for Cekas and Agostino Iacurci (Italy) and I’m focused to organize the pieces with them.”

Flora Turns to Fauna as dalEAST is in Łódź, Poland

Flora Turns to Fauna as dalEAST is in Łódź, Poland

Brooklyn-Street-Art-2014-Urban-Forms-Banner-740

Thinking of going out hiking this weekend to see the fern and the flora and the fauna? Face it, you have to go out of the city to see these things – or at least to Central Park. When was the last time you saw a deer prancing up Flushing Avenue or sifting through vinyl platters at Brooklyn Flea market?

Actually if you were in Łódź right now you would catch dalEAST completing his new deer for Urban Forms 2014, the mural program that has given the city a place of distinction for its quality work installed over a multi-year period. dalEast has again distilled a moment in the imagination where atoms and elements in the ether coalesce and take formation, as these flora actually become fauna before your eyes.

We’re pleased to partner with Urban Forms and photographer Michał Bieżyński to bring BSA readers these exclusive new images of dalEast.

MORIK Starts the 2014 Urban Forms Festival in Łódź, Poland

MORIK Starts the 2014 Urban Forms Festival in Łódź, Poland

Brooklyn-Street-Art-2014-Urban-Forms-Banner-740

Urban Forms in Łódź, Poland marks year 5 and their 31st wall for the city with Russia’s Morik and iterative laying that mimics the digital art made by plan and happenstance during the day of a designer. A Street Artist with roots in graffiti, Morik hails from Siberia and has an illustration style encompassing this moments fascination with photo realism and clever hi-def effects – but brought to you by the hand and brush.

3TTMAN Completes the 30th Mural for Urban Forms In Lodz

3TTMAN Completes the 30th Mural for Urban Forms In Lodz

Brooklyn-Street-Art-Urban-Forms-Banner-740

3TTman has just completed the 30th mural for the Urban Forms project in Lodz, Poland. An eye-popping storyteller who often uses his works to tell allegories of a sociological, political, environmental nature, 3TTman hasn’t told us the full story here, but we see images of power, currency, natural resources, and a head on a plate. It’s contemporary work that recalls mid-century graphic design and all his stories are colorfully told in his geometric and illustrative style.

Born in Lille and schooled alongside talented friend and Street Artist Remed, 3TTman travels globally doing large-scale walls singularly (sometimes collaboratively) in the company of artists such as Zbiok, Remed, Grems, Spok, Sixe, Nuria Mora, Suso33, Neko, Agostino Iacurci, and others. This new wall will certainly brighten the gray days of Lodz, and it may even make people inquire about the story behind it.

TONE Animates a Wall for Urban Forms in LODZ

TONE Animates a Wall for Urban Forms in LODZ

Brooklyn-Street-Art-Urban-Forms-Banner-740

Painter, muralist, illustrator and animator TONE (Robert Proch) has just completed the 27th mural for the Urban Forms festival in Lodz and has brought a touch of surreality and movement that hints at other art forms now occupying minds in the contemporary art world. Whether video, animation or projection mapping, our imaginations are taking flight via technological innovation and the natural comfort which digital natives have working in the virtual world.

The Polish born TONE may have only recently completed formal studies in fine art but he brings to his static abstract mural work a sense that there are dimensions in the digital realm that are enveloping; cycling whirlpools of flying planes and fragments that carry us and as we swim and bob along into and out of each others field of vision.

A very striking, elegant, and well-told story via animation by Robert Proch from a few years ago gives you an idea of the level of sophistication involved with his work and process.
