Steven Cybulka’s practice encompasses sculpture and installation ranging from small to largescale. Interested in manipulating space in order to elicit a heightened viewer response, he draws inspiration from Carl Jung’s texts on shadow play. Richard Serra, Aaron Curry and emerging German artist Clemens Behr are also major influences, informing the way his individual sculptural forms are articulated and configured.
In 2015 Cybulka completed a Bachelor of Arts and Applied Design at the University of South Australia, graduating with First Class Honours, and he was recently commissioned to create a public artwork for the new Ergo Apartments developmentin Adelaide’s CBD. Titled Transition… 109, the installation comprises three separate concrete sculptures thoughtfully arranged as interventions throughout the complex’s open courtyard. In 2013 he won the Arts Excellence Award(Sculpture) from the Adelaide College of Arts. He began exhibiting locally the following year, when he was also made the inaugural Adelaide FestivalCentre/SALA Artist-in-Residence.
