Janek Simon

3D print of polylactide (PLA) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET), 130 x 110 cm

Simon, with his charac­teristic fascination with inter­lin­ked, anec­dotal stories, relays his own tale of a researcher-traveler using a par­ticular visual code. The relief, based on the ornamental tapestries of Afghanistan, the Caucasus, Poland’s Pod­lasie region and of West Africa, stitches together a personal nar­rative of the artist's emotional and artistic life, encoded within colorful 3D-printed bricks.
