Sculptor Piotr Twardowski

Piotr Twardowski

Winner Biennal 2006



The inspiration for my sculpture was fascination with the matter of cosmos – the surprising world, gradually discovered but still unknown, the super-space of hidden processes, an entities and a formal structures. The science discovers still new models and diverse objects of the mega- world.
The title of work “PT-18” referring to the names of the planetoids flying next to Earth, constitutes my initials and the year of foundation. It presents my “fraction of the Universe” – a subtle and sufficiently complicated mechanism in which the movement of one of the minor elements is intriguing to reflection and questions about the relation of a part to the whole, and thus about the coexistence of the man, of the life on Earth with the Universe.
