Part tribal fetish objects, part spray-
His current exhibition emphasizes the tension between nature and civilization. Lipski shows us a chaotic mixture of fruits coming from different locations and contexts, resulting in a monstrous wild growth. Fruit and nature become a metaphor for desire and ancient classical tradition, but at the same time come across as dangerous, frightening and poisonous. These two different kinds of sensation exist in one moment. Lipksi reflects on the powerful way nature reproduces itself constantly and how life is running out of control.
Lipski’s recent work is characterized by a newfound visual complexity. “My work exists between the cultural and the visual level,” he explains, “I’m interested in the space between something you understand and something that is also abstract. This confusion creates a particular intensity.” His work moves between these two poles; the distance between extremes is blurred, until we find ourselves immersed in a seductive visual chaos.
