With “Ultrastructures” Dominik Jałowiński takes us to a dreamlike journey in time and space, that leads us through human fears and hopes since the II WW to this day. The presented works are separated elements of the whole, they create a complex image that draws the viewer into a kaleidoscope effect.
The structure of the exhibition is based on a psychedelic experience (trip). Its form is inspired by classic psychedelic decorations from the 60s and 70s – wall designs, a disco ball, properly selected light, fractal collage expositions (ranging from large wallpapers to small collages hung on them). Apart from the collages, an important element of the exhibition is the “discodecahedron”. It has the shape of a star, a geometrical solid – the so-called small stellated dodecahedron. Dodecahedron itself is one of the five Platonic solids, and each one of them represents a different element. The element of the dodecahedron is the ether, the substance that fills the universe.
Born 1981 in Lublin, Poland. He lives and works in Warsaw. Dominik explores art from different perspectives – he is a visual artist, a performer, a painter, and a collage maker. At his workshops he questions the boundaries of art as well as cultural, ethnic and social ties. In 2008 he defended his diploma in the studio of prof. Krzysztof Wachowiak at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. In 2015 he was a scholar at the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
