The Family: Life as a Herd
May 28, 2013   
Article's tools:

Photographs and videos by Igor Omulecki are on display at the Le Guern Gallery in an exhibition entitled Waveherd (Stado Fala).

Waveherd is the third part of A Family Triptych, which Omulecki started five years ago. The other two parts, Lucy and It, were directly inspired by the artist’s personal life as he and his wife were expecting their first baby. However, instead of dissecting the family’s daily routines and exploring their private life, Omulecki creates a world whose horizon is marked by outer space and planetary bodies such as the Sun and the Moon. With the stage set like this, the artist introduces his characters as a herd-like family heading through the woods after leaving the safe confines of their home. This is how Omulecki highlights the need to find the right balance with what has been lost, expressing a longing for nature and being part of the natural world where time consists of recurrent life cycles.

Omulecki depicts life as eclectic visual images where observations of the sky inspire a set of stylistically varied scenes, object studies and abstract pictures. The smallest social unit—the family—is portrayed as a part of this universe and the starting point for its exploration.
