Distant Drum

Lukasz Jastrubczak
Curated by Nina Horisaki-Christens

For Distant Drum Polish Resident Artist Lukasz Jastrubczak draws on the feeling of deja vu he has experienced exploring the New York cityscape—familiar through movies and television—for the first time. Jastrubczak explores this sense of disconnect in time and space through a series of illusions undermined as the artist reveals the methods of their creation, like a sad magician.

Lukasz Jastrubczak is a multimedia artist who observes his surrounding reality through the filter of culture – often through classic and cult movies, television and pop-culture. He inserts discreet actions into ordinary situations, playfully subverting our perceptions of the line between fiction and reality. Jastrubczak records these vignettes through video, photography, sound and drawing, mimicking in his installations the disconcerting experience of the passerby who stumbles across his public interventions. His work has been exhibited at venues including the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Gallery Taik as part of the Berlin Biennale, the OFF Festival in Myslowice (Poland), the Centre for Contemporary Arts Ujazdowki Castle in Warsaw, the Polish National Museum in Zielona Gora, and the main railway station in Ankara, Turkey.
