Vortrag und Diskussion

Marcin Rusak wurde 1987 in Warschau, Polen geboren und lebt und arbeitet jetzt in London. Seine Arbeit platziert sich an der Schnittstelle von Werten, Vergänglichkeit und Ästhetik. Er studiert das zeitgenössische Verbraucherverhalten, die Industriemethoden der Manipulation und das komplizierte System, das wir unterstützen.

Bei seinem Streben nach Authentizität kreiert er Arbeiten, die Fragen stellen, sich auf Geschichte beziehen und mögliche zukünftigen Szenerien vorschlagen. Er verwendet die Kraft von Materialien, Volumen und Formen und bewegt sich zwischen dekorativem Kunstobjekt und Skulptur sowie zweidimensionalen Arbeiten geleitet von Geschichte.

Sein Hintergrund ist sowohl in Geisteswissenschaften (BA European Studies, University of Warsaw) als auch in Kunst und Design wie durch den Studiengang „Man and Living“ von der konzeptionellen Eindhoven Design Academy, Niederlanden als auch einem MA in Design Products vom Londoner Royal College of Arts.

Aus seinem Manifest: „Decaying and ageing materials have an important place in my practice. I develop them from organic ingredients in order to create objects that have en element of life on their own. Through research, craft and utilisation of new technology I try to embrace a complex approach to art in order to re evaluate objects and their significance while celebrating the organic outcome of natural materials and processes.“

In Kooperation mit Prof Ineke Hans / KM Marciej Chmara, Design and Social Context.

Talk and Discussion

Marcin Rusak was born in 1987 Warsaw, Poland. He now lives and works in London. Marcin situates his work at the intersection of value, ephemerality and aesthetics. He studies contemporary patterns of consumption, industry methods of manipulation, and the complicated systems we support.

In his pursuit of authenticity, Marcin creates work that asks questions, references history and proposes possible future scenarios. Utilising the power of materials, volume and form he moves fluidly from decorative art objects to sculptures, two dimensional work and back again each time with a story as his guide.

Marcin has a background in both humanities (BA from European Studies from University of Warsaw) and art programmes such as Man and Living at the conceptual Eindhoven Design Academy, Netherlands as well as receiving an MA in Design Products from London’s Royal College of Arts.

From his manifesto: “Decaying and ageing materials have an important place in my practice. I develop them from organic ingredients in order to create objects that have en element of life on their own. Through research, craft and utilisation of new technology I try to embrace a complex approach to art in order to re evaluate objects and their significance while celebrating the organic outcome of natural materials and processes.”

In Cooperation with Prof Ineke Hans / KM Maciej Chmara, Design and Social Context.
