Searching for Elias

with Androphyne, stagedesign




As a sculptor and sound-artist Pozornski was well ahead of his time, improvising on burning soundspeakers in the early 50s. Being a migrant and fleeing the war in Europe his work is strong in expression and full of semi-scientific experiments. It seems his art has been forgotten for the longest time. This is why Androphyne is making this hommage, to remember a prodigious artist.

Mission Statement of Pozornki Fundacja Sztuki:

"The vision of the Pozornski Fundacja Sztuki is to share with the world the creative and civic-minded spirit that exemplified this artist's life. We will seek opportunities that showcase the qualities of being fearless, innovative, collaborative and pattern-breaking. We will strive to encourage a dialogue that is a voice for positive change. The Pozornski Fundacja Sztuki seeks to further the artist's philanthropic and educational initiatives, and aims to preserve and advance global understanding of the legacy of Elias Pozornski's life and artwork.


Stanis Kwiatkowski formed the Pozornski Fundacja Sztuki in 2013 to promote awareness of the causes and groups close to his heart. [...] Today, the Pozornski Fundacja Sztuki extends this scope with varied programs, including a new grant for artistic innovation and collaboration and direct assistance for the advancement of art. The foundation's vision, mission and strategy are coordinated to promote the artist's values and to ensure that all endeavors express the essence of Pozornski's philosophy: Art can change art."


Invited by Androphyne to work on this piece about the sculptor Elias Pozornski. In collaboration with the Pozornski Fundacja Sztuki (Pozornski Art Foundation). Its Mission is to keep alive the memory and spirit of the recently deceased Elias Pozornski. For the presentation of their research work, we developped together a stage design in honor of the artist who in his lifetime developped an astonishing variety of avantgard art-pieces in performance and sound.
