Krzysztof Fijalkowski

‘The Incompletist’

Edition of 500
36 190gsm offset cards with four-colour print process to front and back
101 x 152 x 8mm

Dr Krzysztof Fijalkowski’s area of research is the visual, literary and intellectual culture of the mid-twentieth century avant-garde, above all the work and legacy of the international surrealist movement. Collecting has also been an area of long-standing interest and passion.

‘The Incompletist’ is a text as edition that presents ideas on collecting and collections. The edition has been produced from a set of 36 index cards onto which Krzysztof presented hand written thoughts, ideas, statements and possibilities as a set of research that has been amassed over time. Specific areas of exploration include scale, quantity, touch, collecting and time, purpose and happenstance.

Although there is an order to the text, the potential for it to be shuffled and restructured develops its potential and allows it to be seen in similar terms to a collection of objects. A blank card is included in the set further highlighting the endless nature of collecting and giving the potential for new ideas to be expressed.
