CREATION TIME: 2017
MEASUREMENTS:
L 140 cm x W 110 cm x H 35 cm WEIGHT: 20 kg

DESCRIPTION:
Garbage Collector’s life purpose is to fly around in pursuit of parts and fuel.
Its favourite places are abandoned landfills and patches of plastic pollutants.
His basic AI selects and fixes useful electronic parts salvaged from computers and other various equipment.
His fuel is plastic. Thanks to ingenious semi-organic engine, he spits no fumes, no toxic by-products to the outside world.
G.C. gets bigger every time he feasts, adding useful parts to its vulture-crab body.
When he becomes too heavy to fly, G.C ‘gives birth’ to its next generation of scavenging cleaners…

: ABOUT THE ARTIST

Oskar (OK) Krajewski 

Born in 1979 in Poland. Studied in Academy of Fine Arts, Lodz, Poland. Living and working in London, UK since 2002. So far, OK has exhibited over 15 times (group and solo) in London and beyond. Under the “OK” brand there are several freelancers helping with the artistic concepts and projects. The main activities of OK are Sculptures, (conceptual) Photography, Video, Installation, Paintings & Drawings.

“I invest my time in solid and complex creations, thought-provoking and interactive. My inspiration comes from visions, dreams, technological and spiritual studies and practice. In my latest creations I have attempted to merge these fields of knowledge and experience. My art is to intrigue, to please the viewer’s eye and to provoke thoughts. One of my main goals and wishes is to influence general public so they are more drawn to art (not only mine of course). There is only an elite awareness about what is happening in the art world today. Through Art, I would like to convey the message about importance of the subconsciousness and connection to nature and oneself. On more physical level, I feel that one of my main missions in the art world is to find the end spectrum for the detailed composition. I have to express myself through Art – I could not live a healthy wholesome life without letting it flow through me.” – OK
