In his art, Szymon Kobylarz often manifests
his ironic attitude and distance toward reality.
His interests include parascientific
phenomena, conspiracy theories (Civil defence,
ECHELON70), science, maths and ways of
rendering it into the realm of art (DIAMAT,
Questioning the sense of costly installations
still being created in times of art surplus, he
responds by painting the Art for Art’s Sake
series which depict the nonexistent exhibitions hefor
various reasons - never had. He takes similar
approach in the Magazynier | Meeting Room
0.5 (Storehouse Attendant) project, or with
the set of works presented during the Poręczne
(Handy) exhibition where he reuses his old,
already existing pieces to make new installations.
He admits he has been interested for quite
some time now in scientific matters and their
processing, testing, and reading by people who
have little to do with actual science.
He considers himself such a person and in the
wake of his fascination with maths, or, to be
more precise, with the Fibonacci sequence,
fractals, and the golden mean, Szymon Kobylarz
constructs his wooden pieces in an attempt to
translate the language of science into the
language of art.
