David Jablonowski (born in 1982 in Bochum) makes work which investigates the history and potential of communication in visual culture. His sculptures, films and installations explore cultural aesthetics, display systems and information transfer, from calligraphic manuscripts to TV advertising and the World Wide Web. Jablonowski’s sculptures combine a wide range of materials including aluminium, plaster, Styrofoam, ceramic, wood, found texts, offset-printing plates and components from information technology hardware such as computers and flat bed scanners. He is interested in the possibilities of these materials, overlapping and layering different surfaces to make new sculptural assemblages.
At BALTIC, Jablonowski will present an installation of recent sculpture and video together with new work made especially for the exhibition.
