Jerzy Goliszewski - Lac Bleu
Although the installations created by Jerzy Goliszewski are evidently related to sculpture, they seem to have more to do with paintings. Composed with thousends of little elements, the perfectly elaborated form makes us think about the vision of a series of collumns of a giant radio equalizer, and seems to be equally dynamic. The accompanying ceramic mosaic referes to both Hockney’s swimming-pools and Monet’s impressionist water lillies. The vast, wooden construction finds its origins in the mysterious title, „Lac Bleu”, which provides a hint for interpretation: „Lac Bleu” is a enchanting ”blue lake” in the Alps. Two experiences converge in Jerzy Goliszewski’s structures. Firstly, bionics, science dedicateted to the study of forms and constructions created by nature. Secondly, the composition of forms in space, structualist searches and abstract tradition which constitute the fundament of the activities at prof. Jacek Dyrzynski’s Studio of the Knowledge of Activities and Visual Structures at Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, where the installation was created. „Lac Bleu” combines these praxis in a poetic manner. Through reduction and multiplication the artist constructs a harmonious panorama. In its extremely geometric, monumental form, „Lac Bleu” encloses the analysis of the mountain landscape surrounding Chamonix.
