Description

Jarosław Kukowski’s “Memento” series are four-dimensional artistic installations, which are a combination of sculpture, painting and working monumental clocks. Each clock is unique, hand-made by the artist and numbered and signed by him. The creative process is lengthy, so installations are made a few or fewer per year.

The clocks were exhibited at the Louvre in Paris, the National Gallery of Zachęta, Polish and foreign museums and next to the original Gutenberg Bible in Poland.

About AuthorList of exhibitionsOther J. Kukowskiego's arts

Jarosław Kukowski (born on April 11, 1972 in Tczew) – Polish contemporary painter, designer, and juror of international art competitions. His works could be seen, among others at the Louvre, Zachęta National Gallery of Art, Department of the National Museum – Rabbits, California Modern Art Gallery in San Francisco, New York, SOHO Studios in Miami, BOXeight Studios & Gallery in Los Angeles. Kukowski, belonging to the circle of surrealists, is considered one of the most influential contemporary artists.

At the beginning of his work, the atmosphere of his works, considered symbolic, is saturated with drama and sadness. Distorted human figures and mythical creatures are depicted against the backdrop of surreal landscapes. A series of these works was defined by the author as NieSny. The next period of Kukowski’s work presents a definitely brightened palette. Acts have become the dominant theme of his paintings, but even here you can feel the mark of decay and passing time. These works were painted in the form of frescoes destroyed by the time and showing completely different paintings under them. In the next phase of his work, Kukowski referred to his first works, but despite the clearer tones his paintings became more and more ironic and provocative.

Jarosław Kukowski’s “Memento Mori” series are four-dimensional artistic installations, which are a combination of sculpture, painting and monumental clocks. Each hand-made clock is unique, numbered and signed by it. The creative process is long, which is why installations are made several or less times a year. This cycle is a development of the “Fresco” painting cycle, which has been ongoing since the 1990s.
Clocks as unique works of art were exhibited along with Kukowski’s paintings in many galleries and museums, including the Zachęta National Gallery of Art and the Diocesan Museum in Pelplin, where they are presented next to the only Gutenberg Bible in Poland.
