Janek Simon
Sculpture from the Museum of Man in Paris Made Based on Oskar Hansen’s and Lech Kunka’s Drawings

3D print of polylactide (PLA), ca. 40 x 15 cm each

A series of sculptures first prepared by Simon for the "Map. Artistic Migrations and the Cold War" exhibition at Zachęta National Art Gallery in Warsaw (2013/2014) as a part of its "artistic scenography".
The figures allude to the so-called primitive forms in art and were created by the artist using a do-it-yourself 3D printer. Their direct iconographical point of reference are sketches from the Musée de l'Homme (Musem of Man) in Paris made by Polish avant-garde artists during their stay in France in the late 40s and early 50s.
