Kornel Janczy
18th February - 13th March

The work was created as part of the SOON_19 project as a continuation and development of the Supertheory cycle by Kornel Janczy. It is a series of many small-format works on paper and canvas, and objects. In their form, the pieces refer to astronomical photographs, illustrations and models from academic, popular science and science-fiction publications. The issue of how the scientific knowledge of astronomy functions in popular culture is crucial for the artist. He explores the boundaries between truth and fiction, science and pseudoscience.

Unlike before, instead of a range of small pieces, one big mural covering the whole wall was created. The artist combined new motifs with ones existing earlier, thus giving rise to a work resembling the view of the night sky.

Kornel Janczy – born in 1984. A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts (ASP) in Krakow, a doctoral candidate at the Faculty of Art, the Pedagogical University of Cracow. Took part in individual and collective exhibitions e.g. in Bunkier Sztuki Gallery of Contemporary Art in Kraków, the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, BWA Sokół in Nowy Sącz, BWA Wrocław, Art Agenda Nova in Kraków, the 4th Mediations Biennial in Poznań, Galerie Gabriele Senn in Vienna, Bestregarts Galerie in Fraknfurt.
