Cristopher Cichocki encapsulates the cycle of decay and renewal through an examination between humankind, the natural world, and industrial production. Extending upon the historical trajectory of Land Art, Cichocki underlines the increasingly toxic global environment confronting our planet in the new millennium. Situated on the fringe of art and natural science, the artist’s environmental interventions reflect on the timeline spanning from pre-historic oceans to present-day transmutations. For decades, Cichocki’s work has been immersed in the desert of Southern California, responding to the dynamic ecology and water issues of the region through interconnected works of video, painting, sculpture, photography, performance, sound, installation and architectural intervention. The artist’s audiovisual project Circular Dimensions is an ever-evolving performance and installation that travels in a site-responsive fashion to museums, theaters and arts & music festivals.
Cichocki’s work has been featured in numerous exhibitions around the world in such institutions as the Museum of Image and Sound, São Paulo, Bienalle Urbana, Venice, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Casa França-Brasil, Rio de Janerio, Museum of Moving Image, New York, Portland Museum of Contemporary Art, Portland, Museum of Art and History, Lancaster, Palm Springs Art Museum, Palm Springs, Artere-A, Guadalajara, Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, MM Center Cinema, Zagreb, Croatia, The Institute of Mentalphysics, Joshua Tree, The Paseo Project, Taos, New Mexico.
