Kumža’s works exist in a universe governed by a deceptive logic, that elevates the banality of everyday life into the status of oddity. His work stages conversations with objects that remain mute, as to orchestrate a performance between the animated and the lifeless. While the artist’s work positions itself primarily within photography, its content is often constructed as an installation, using sculptural elements and presentation displays to create embodied experiences for the audience. Visual illusions, spatial constructs, inverted colours and exaggerated scales are found in his practice.
