Konrad Jarodzki’s recent series of works focus on the problem of matter penetrating space. In this case, the artist’s method approaches that of a scientist, taking as a departure point something concrete, at least partially analysed, and referring to the current state of knowledge in order to venture into new territory and explore it. To him, matter, as an element relatively familiar and accessible, that is real, becomes an instrument employed to penetrate space, a non-reality still strange and largely unexplored. His method is informed by man’s eternal cognitive urge to penetrate through the mysteries of the universe and grasp the underlying principles of nature. At this point, the question arises about the need and possibility of such cognition.
