Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

NUCLEUS is a multi-element sculpture made of colourized stainless steel using FiDU technology. Resembling a nimbus or an aureole, it consists of eleven triangular elements composed into an ideal circle.

The juxtaposition of dynamic, even aggressive geometric forms with the soft and regular shape of the circle creates a dramatic effect. Additionally, the elements of the structure change their colour gradually: from emerald green to sapphire blue shades. The artist managed to maintain the reflecting nature of metal and mix it with deep and strong colours.

“Researching colouring techniques and selecting proper materials was a long process,” Oskar explains. “The coat is applied with a special painting technique so as to obtain a luscious colour gradient.”

Artist Profile

Born: 1975

Hometown: Zielona Góra

Based in: Wroclaw

Oskar Zięta is an artist fascinated with the formal properties of metals, which he transforms into sculptures that play with the senses, often intimidate with their scale and cross the border between what is possible and what is only imagined. In his works, he uses his original method of metal forming, which gives him endless possibilities of manipulating the material, while not depriving it of authenticity and craftsmanship naturality.

Zieta creates both sculptures based on mathematical precision, as well as organic objects that question Euclidean geometry. His projects are the result of a close relationship between man and the material, a practice already exercised by his father Jan and grandfather Bolesław. While they forged steel with the help of their own hands and heavy tools, Oskar Zięta in his work uses more sophisticated machining methods. He is a 4.0 blacksmith who carves with data, which he materializes in the form of sculptures – that give the impression of being subtly shaped by the natural forces. They contain the truth about the material from which they are made – Zięta deforms and stabilizes metal with internal pressure, on the basis of meticulously collected information about it. How will it behave under the influence of a certain force? How will a polished surface reflect its surroundings? How will the context influence the reception of a given form? These are the questions that Zięta faces during the creative process based on the idea of ​​a controlled loss of control. At the same time, he leaves the material a considerable margin of freedom, thanks to which he enters into a dialogue with it both in the virtual and real world – transforming bits into atoms, and these again into bit representations. Thanks to this cooperation with the material, his objects are characterized by a dose of precisely planned poetics.

Oskar Zięta, born in 1975, is an architect, artist, craftsman and process designer, and the founder of Zieta Studio. He lives and works in Wrocław. He holds a PhD from Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule in Zurich. In 2010, he created his first works on an architectural scale, including Blow & Roll installation for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The sculpture, composed of profiles inflated on the spot, contained an element of fun and performance, which is present to this day in the work of the artist still experimenting with scale and form, as well as with the aesthetic potential of steel structures.

He is the creator of the highest sculpture in public space in Poland, called Wir (Warsaw 2017), as well as the urban sculpture of Nawa (Wrocław 2017), which contributed to the revitalization of the surrounding area. In 2019, Nawa was nominated for the prestigious award in the field of contemporary architecture – the European Mies van der Rohe Award.

Oskar Zięta’s works belong to the collections of such museums like the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich, the Pinakothek in Munich, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
