Sven-Julien Kanclerski creates sculptures and installations that offer a fresh perspective on familiar cultural motifs, inviting the observer to rediscover them. His creations, characterised by hybridised forms from everyday commercial items, straddle the line between the recognisable and the uncanny. His ordinary and extraordinary balance captivates viewers emotionally.

Kanclerski’s works use fragmented elements, subtle components, and lingering traces instead of perfect aesthetics to achieve their impact. The pleasure of recognising the familiar undergoes a metamorphosis, evolving into a profound joy of rediscovery.

SJK intentionally integrates commodity fetishism into his art through scaling, hybridisation, and refined material. While certain pieces may suggest practical functionality, this illusion is not a testament to their utility but to the enchantment inherent in mass-produced forms.
