This summer Lithuanian museum Europos Parkas,which features sculpture art created by the most
famous world artists, welcomes an exhibition by the Polish sculptor Jerzy Kędziora a.k.a Jotka. The
open-air museum space will exhibit a new trend in the world of contemporary art, namely the
artwork that find sits location between the earth and sky.
Jerzy Kędziora a.k.a Jotka creates balancing sculptures, which seem to defy the force of gravity and
laws of statics, conveying the timeless message from the author to people of all cultures. According
to the author, his sculptures illustrate unrealistic desires, like a dream of walking on a tightrope,
offering a possibility to envision oneself in a completely different reality. The story behind each
Kędziora’s artwork would be no shorter than an actual person’s biography -his artwork offers that
much of content.The figures hanging above the heads of spectators seem to actin a similar manner as
the bystanders: they observe, watch others go, imitate, and sometimes make fun.
Author’s expositions are regularly hosted all over the world.His artwork was featured innumerous
events, such as Amsterdam Sculpture Biennale“Artzuid”, Venice Biennale “Personal Structures”,
Art Basel Miami, various art events in Taiwan, USA, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Switzerland, among
others.Author’s permanent exhibitions are heldin Cracow, Lourdes, Berlin, Prague, Rotterdam.
Emerging as an actual spectacle between the earth and sky, this time Jerzy Jotka Kędziora’s
exhibition takes place in the combined landscape of Lithuanian nature and worldwide art. The
expressive, dynamic, often ambiguous, and surprising sculptures will prompt visitors to balance on
the verge of their imagination and new discoveries.
Jerzy Kędziora says: “For years, I have been unsuccessfully trying to meet the challenge, which for
the old political order, posed to me from behind our eastern border: Lithuanians, Georgians,
Latvians, and even Kazakhs, whom I met at international plain-airs in Poland. They signalled a
desire to show my works on their territory in their cultural areas. I was very pleased receiving the
invitation from Gintaras Karosas – an outstanding artist, creator, animator and organiser of the
Europos Parkas – very significant for contemporary sculpture not only for our part of Europe. The
familiarization visit in January confirmed my belief that this is a great place for presenting
balancing sculptures. Showing my sculptures in the context of the artworks of many celebrities of
modern art gathered by Gintaras Karosas is a pleasure and raises the rank of the event.”
The exhibition is open at Europos Parkas from July to November.
