Almost Calm / Freshness – Krystian Truth Czaplicki
Almost Calm / Freshness, 2015, powder coated steel, Listerine Cool Mint, marker
Almost Calm / Freshness is a continuation of a search for connections between the form and material and the little distortions in perceiving reality and mental conditions. Using evaporating substances and crystals the author tries to unveil the inner contradiction of desires and beliefs, underlining impulses, thoughts and imaginations that are recurring.
