Honza Zamojski (b. 1981) is an artist, designer, book publisher and curator whose work draws upon a broad range of media and artistic practice, from illustration and illustrative sculptures to infographics inspired by corporate communications and poetic word games. Honza Zamojski has authored more than a dozen books, including: Love Letter, onestar press, 2017; Four Eggs Theory, self-published, 2015; Fishing with John, NERO, 2013.
Commissioned for the Biennial, The Gathering and The Meeting is an excavation site where the remains of different media chance upon one another: a group of synthetic skeletons – a tribe of headless Blemmyes – greet the visitor as if in the midst of a ritual or council. Static, silent and faceless, these Blemmyes offer a sentiment-free space, not a fraction of emotion or intention can be read upon them.
The Audience Award for Best Artist was first awarded at the 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts in 2013.
