‘The Hoarder-Gatherer’ is a nomadic research practice Tomasz Skibicki has developed. In the manner of a forensic scientist, he performs autopsies of places and things to subsequently incorporate found objects and vernacular signs into his work.
Tomasz Skibicki creates installations, sculptures and films based on what he likes to call “first-hand encounters with second-hand stuff.”
Refining traditional crafts and techniques such as ‘tramp art’, his practice results in personal reminders of these encounters that often speak to concerns of migration, consumerism, and death. Inspired by the aesthetics of sports gear and devotional objects, these idiosyncratic artifacts eye as icons of future believe systems.
