Curated by Francesco Stocchi, the exhibition will showcase twenty works, made between the 1990’s and 2015. Works on canvas and sculpture take form throughout the act of physical creation, exploring the relationship between abstraction and space of human action. Polanszky’s interest in the spatial research of the '60s, and as a witness to the experience of Viennese Actionism influenced his attitude towards the more gestural and immediate, he developed an intimate, even deliberately cryptic language that gives shape to his gestures and dissociative time, starting with the use of waste materials.
The artist's approach is accomplished in an attempt to analyze the fundamentals of creative language: space, light, color, rhythm. Meaning the creative practice as a genuine expression of cognitive, non-intellectual knowledge generates the art making, which becomes an attempt to understand the unknown. In particular, the sculptures of the artist are composed of a series of recurring elements, such as steel, wood, plexiglass, feathers, foam, colors, reflections, insecurity, memory. Joined together, these elements trace the shape of the blank, expressed in an idiosyncrasy toward gravity. The same tension is found in the artist's paintings, real reliefs that enhance the properties of the materials. Work and artist's intentions evolve along with the conceptual research, focused on the status of the artwork, its definition and its perception.
Keeping as horizon this reflection about space, Polanszky manipulates both space and matter in this way, the matter up to the vacuum, to prefer processes to the forms, ideas to achievements, the view to the touch, the emptiness, the silence, the absence. Each work is itself a metaphor of his own inner life.
