TIBIS II sculpture, Konrad Ziolkowski 2021 (2021)
imagined a tall figure, very ethereal, whose body is affected by the wind. TIBIS is very uplifting, so I did not see him otherwise than on a light, high, detached from the ground. A standing sculpture only on a plane, in the direction of the cutout. In the relation between the sculpture and the basics, I wanted the figure to stand on a soft surface but with a specific shape. Way in every direction without gravity ...
TIBIS is not physically strong, but he is very penetrating, he sees more than others ...
TIBIS is an edition of six sculptures, each of the six sculptures will be treated differently. In this edition, I want to focus on the lightness and relations of various materials, hard, soft and of course color :)
