Accompanying the Jarosław Kozakiewicz. The Spinning Head exhibition at the Zachęta — National Gallery, this book explores the ways in which Jarosław Kozakiewicz’s sculpture and drawings connect the intimate scale of the human body with the far larger dimensions of architecture and, ultimately, the infinite expanse of space. Kozakiewicz is perhaps best known for speculative and utopian architectural schemes that set out to propose alternative ways of engaging with nature and the environment.
This book addresses another key line in Kozakiewicz’s practice as an artist — his long standing interest in the intimate geometries of the body. Texts by the leading architectural historian Joseph Rykwert, art critic and theorist Patrycja Cembrzyńska and curator David Crowley, explore the ways in which Kozakiewicz’s art approaches the human body as both microcosm and macrocosm.
