Tomasz Skibicki produces installations, sculptures, and films based on what he likes to call ‘first-hand encounters with second-hand stories’. The ‘Hoarder-Gatherer’ is a nomadic research practice he has developed, where he comes into personal contact with vulgar cultural objects and vernacular signs. In such investigative moments, he produces immersive video works in which he considers technique as special effects.
Technique also plays a central role in Skibicki’s sculptures, as he refines traditional crafts such as wood-carving and assembling to produce works that as much speak to concerns of consumerism and death, as they are riddles in personal and arcane narratives.
