Piotr Bujak, Thursday, April 18th
through Saturday, April 20th
4:00pm until 9:00pm
The Performance Art Institute proudly presents
“Light Rhapsody”, the second installment of current artist-in-residence, Pio’s, mixed-media installations.
Piotr Bujak (a.k.a. Pio) is an interdisciplinary artist from Poland, graduate of Jan Matejko’s Acadmy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland and San Francisco Art Institute. His most current exploration is based on a research in the intersection of violence, mass media and consumption, together with the mechanisms and theories of human perception. In his work he combines the idea of Fluxus’ DIY strategy, the minimalistic approach to new media, and accessibility of the visual impulse in the modern world.
“‘Light Rapsody’ is a mixed-media work depicting my interest in obsessive-compulsive nature of consumerism,” says Pio. “It is a critical study of the notion of ‘Bread and Circuses’ in a modern civilization of unlimited access to information. It also reflects my research into dialogue between digitally manipulated time-based media and very rough materials used in a single installation.”
This event is free and open to the public.
