Focused on discovering of vague relationships between the individual, its identity and memory, and the community life and architecture, Bąkowski is primarily a poet devoted to create a synthetic metaphors.
By the minimalist objects and also abstract film images, artist creates utterances, which can in a unique way translate his private and subjective experience onto the universal language. Everyday objects, scraps of reality, images and words fused into a work of art, convey important meanings, memories and fugitive impressions. The recipient confronted with the work of the artist has a sense that he is invited to penetrate the extreme introvert states of consciousness of the entity, but which turn out to be surprisingly communicative and comprehensible.
