In his artistic work, the artist Lukasz Furs deals with the public space that directly surrounds him. For the Polish-born, Berlin-based artist, this includes not only the urban space itself, but also the digital world of the Word Wide Web as an important resource. Subway shafts, construction site cladding or demolition views often serve as decals for his site-specific installation works. The materials used are the industry standard as traded in any hardware store, chipboard, sheetrock, metal rails, dowels, trapezoidal sheet metal. It is about the physical as well as temporary presence that is inherent in these places. Direct and immediate. Often Furs creates states of a film still. It is only the tiny section of a coincidence that he captures sculpturally. A moment in the process of decay, to which everything earthly and material is dedicated. Lukasz Furs' installations are completely destroyed by the artist at the end of an exhibition. The principle of different levels, which Lukasz Furs uses in his installations, is also the intellectual starting point and the fundamental principle of his print works. These works are created digitally on the computer with the help of scanners and printers, but also with the help of analog techniques. The image material comes almost exclusively from the treasure trove that is the Internet. In addition, there are biographically motivated images: Childhood photos and very associative, from childish memory retrieved naive image fragments. The document in which the works are created is a rigid frame of a computer program in which certain contents react with each other, merge, combine or dissolve, while other contents in turn disappear from the document. The digital images created in this way are thus more than a classic collage. Digital technology offers far more possibilities in addition to scissors and glue. At the same time, they are the basis of a process that develops its own dynamics and cannot be planned and controlled in all details by the artist. Materials such as chipboard, aluminum mirrors or furniture back panels are also used here as supports. The digital works thus acquire their unique object character.
