Everything is Adead of Us, Nothing is Ahead of Us
His works emerge out of a consistent confrontation with the history of abstract painting since the beginnings of the 20th century, that is, the repository of knowledge around the formation of a pictorial structure without a symbolic narrative level. Thus, there are quotations in some of his works. Some of the form imprints and materials remind, for example, of the archaic picture compositions of the Catalan artist Antonio Tàpies. Marcin thus refers to the contemporary artist’s being embedded in the context of the history of painting, to his own preferences and to similar questions that preoccupy also his contemporaries.

You Are Mine
In Jakub Julian Ziółkowski's wild cosmos of fantastic figures, organic forms and circulatory systems, the Polish painter mixes cultural symbols, the spiritual and the microscopic. His universe full of details is a kaleidoscope of references - from Hieronymus Boschs to James Ensors to Philip Guston - and at the same time a very personal world populated by recurring figures.This publication is the first comprehensive overview of his work from 2005 to the present and provides insights into his work with various media: from painting to sculpture and ceramics to drawing. Essays by Olga Tokarczuk, Nobel Prize winner in literature, and Cecilia Alemani, curator of the 59th Venice Biennale, an extensive interview with the artist, and texts by philosopher Kajetan Młynarski and psychologist Bartłomiej Dobroczyński, illuminate his surreal visual cosmos.
