Entry Description

The project "Freckle/s" sums up the process of formal exploration that started ten years ago: “Ten years ago, I placed an order with the Division of Control and Robotics in Poznan - to cut a perfect square in a metal plate. I placed the square on the photographic paper and exposed it. I repeated that process one thousand times, exposing paper after paper. Each image served as a negative to the next. As a result of that experiment, I discovered the potential of the perfect figure and its organic shape”, describes Kołodziejski. This conceptual experiment initiated a formal exploration on the level of various media - painting, installation, sculpture – and became a leitmotif that comes back in artist’s various projects: represented by a figure-stain, figure-mole, figure-stigmat, or figure-freckle. It finally becomes an ironic commentary or a self- portrait of the artist.
