About Stanko Sequens

The work of Adam Stanko and Helena Sequens, this highly regarded pair, who are an integral and very-clearly visible part of the international art scene, is characteristic by its diversity, not only due to a variety of artistic techniques, but also the range of ideas, themes and topics which they deal with the irony and sarcasm.
Helena and Adam create installations, sculptures and drawings, which through cynical and sarcastic humour highlight the current debased political, social, religious and moral situation. Through fascination with the evil and perversion of our society, they put up a mirror that shows us the realities of today and point to the banality of ubiquitous evil. The result of their actions is intense, brutal, disturbing and ironic.
