"Life is boring and dirty"- Anton Tchechow perfectly defined the growing feeling of life of mass society in the beginning of the 19th century. Ryszard Gòrecki combines this quotation in a drawing with other fragments of the world of standardized images. Covers from notebooks, brochures and catalogues made in GDR and Germany appear. Fragments of sentences, words, proverbs, as well as letters, signs and numbers are used. To sum up, the spectator is included in the world, which he interprets as one of permanently serviceable global signs and images.
In addition, the
aesthetics of crossover reminds some spectators of the socialist red
light strategies of wall journals, or of pleasant-chaotic pin walls.
Górecki's tools are still, in a time of high-tech, scissors, glue, scotch,
feather, paintbrush, pencils and ink. This is one of the reasons why
one equally realizes the pre-computerized didactics of the process and
the comprehensible patchwork of the image levels.
Show cases are often
fixed on classroom walls. They explain technological processes, natural
phenomena, and the principal functioning of technical installations.
My object cases and illustrations take over the external form of this
didactical know-how transfer. But additionally, they are destined at
showing the roles, appearances, and relations, to which people are submitted
in modern society. Through the pragmatic logics of these functional
models, people obtain their roles of subordination or control. Thus,
they become a subject that has to reproduce the given types of behavior.
The models of interpretation and explanation, on the other hand, gradually
take the position of the object. This results in an inversed relation
of reality, because now the models determine the to be dominated reality.
This object-subject constellation leads to results that are not predictable
or arrangeable. This then results in side products of thinking and illustration,
that will often act negatively and deranging in this closed system,
and they are thus unwelcome. My art is supposed to be one of these side
products of the productive misunderstanding.
