Konrad Smolenski – Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More

Polish Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2013
The work at the Polish Pavilion is a sculptural instrument that reproduces, at regular intervals, a music piece written for bronze bells, wide-range loudspeakers, and other resonating objects. An active participant of both the independent music scene and the visual art scene for over a decade now, Konrad Smoleński’s practice blends punk-rock aesthetics with Minimalist precision. By using a delay effect, the artist offers an insight into a world where history has come to a standstill, thereby approaching the radical propositions of contemporary physics with its perception of the passage of time as an illusion.
