Galerie Derouillon is pleased to announce our participation to NADA Miami 2019 with a personal exhibition by Przemek Pyszczek.
Przemek Pyszczek recently moved to Drzeniów, a small Polish village which sits close to the German border, just southeast of Berlin. His new relief works are a continued exploration of found forms and materials that surround him in his new environment, further adding to the broad abstract landscape he is creating that depicts the rural and urban collective imagination of post-communist Poland. Referencing human-made objects such as fences and gates that dot the countryside, Pyszczek is flattening these architectural elements and rendering them in the colors and material that are prevalent throughout his new rural home.
Constructed from HDPE (high-density polyethylene), the works are vibrant and robust - they can be installed both indoors and outdoors, and will not fade or weather with time. This material is used to make bottle caps and containers, which increasingly litter our landscape, but can thankfully be recycled. HDPE sheets are also used in the construction of new playgrounds which are being constructed in the surroundings of his village, replacing the types of old communist-era forms that he has referenced in his Playground Structure series.
