Michal Martychowiec, Vanito Vanitas, 2011.
“Vanito Vanitas. Emptying emptiness. At the beginning there is an image. And this somehow iconographic image is a base to operate with in this formal discussion. The initial images operate with symbols only in order for these symbols to be rendered inoperative. To empty the empty is to evoke the pure experience of it. One that can be conceived despite the cultural or intellectual background of the viewer. I deprive my work of any symbolic representation.”
