Artists

Conceptual sculptor creating spatial installations and objects using various sources of light. The work of Piesliak can be divided into periods, during which the artist dedicates all of his creative energy to the development of a specific theme. As a result of these theme-based cycles, the artworks created by the sculptor become a kind of each other’s continuation and are closely interconnected by conceptual links. One of the most important themes of the work of Piesliak, which has been an object of his extensive exploration, is the connection of a person’s mental and emotional state with the surrounding environment. In his installations, the artist reflects over the topic by changing and reshaping the exhibition space through the use of various techniques, and engaging the viewers as well as their experiences in the creative experiment. Everyday sources of light used by the sculptor as tools to transform the atmosphere symbolise facelessness and alienation of social medium. According to Piesliak, the objects used in his work have no individual meaning, while as a whole they serve as an instrument to shape new experience of the observer. With the apparent nakedness of exposed structures evoking an industrial feel, the installations of Piesliak address deep topics pierced with psychological experiences and are often created for a specifically selected space, displayed once and later dismantled by the artist.
