‘NATURE OF THINGS II’
Marcin Rusak is an artist who for the past years, devoted his practice to exploring ideas of value and ephemerality by creating works from organic components.
Unrestrained by a specific medium, but consistently inspired by the beauty and subtlety of the natural world, Marcin embodies the philosophies of Art Nouveau in a contemporary context, whereby the decorative aspects are a derivative of in depth research and investigation of natural materials.
Decaying and ageing pieces have an important place in his practice. He develops them from organic ingredients in order to create objects that have en element of life on their own. Nature has been allowed to dictate the processes and outcomes of each piece with minimal interference. Experimenting with the processes of deconstruction, renewal and reconstruction he wants us to focus on the impermanence of objects and therefore our unique relationship with them. Pieces shown at Horta Museum will explore the subject of ephemerality conceptually and through the nature of the materials employed.
By utilising a variety of new materials and techniques to produce objects that alter rapidly in appearance, or simply disappear, Marcin hopes the viewers will pick up the woven threads and discover their own connections between the pieces and the surrounding material world.
