David Jablonowski artistically examines the surface and the evolution of contemporary communication technologies in sculptures, videos, and installations.

He is acclaimed for the ingenious way in which he plays with a wide range of materials. Jablonowski creates exciting contrasts by locating high tech elements in a natural environment. His artistic interest is in the sculptural quality of communication techniques, as well as the specific aesthetics of different historical media formats, which make a long-term impact on perception and cultural self conception.

In the Plexiglas sculpture ‘Prediction Tower, Hype Cycle’ the artist incorporated different digital information sources and their hyperlink associations, showing their stratification, their interconnectedness, yet at the same time criticizing by showing the complexity of a possible transparency. The work forms a literal transparent display of information, a physical market place of information, in which the ephemeral and quick information-flows assumes a concrete form and question the monumental status of markets.

David Jablonowski attended the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and participated in De Ateliers studio program and the International Studio & Curatorial Program in New York. He won the Charlotte Kӧhler Prize 2013 awarded by the Prince Bernhard Culture Fund. Recent solo exhibitions include Westfalischer Kunstverein Munster, Galerie Fons Welters, Bloombergspace London, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, De Paviljoens, Kunsthalle Basel and Gallery Luettgenmeijer.

David Jablonowski’s work will be on display as part of the exhibition ‘the fluidity aspect’, which runs from the 25th of September until the 5th of October. Find more information about the exhibition here.
