Jan Manski is a 30 years old artist, born in Poland, currently living in London. “Onania” is an ironical perspective on modern beauty, sex and the advertisement industry, and is part of a trilogy cycle where he combines photography with sculpture as well as installations and performances.

“The Onanizer, presented to the audience via a video commercial, is a masturbation machine marketed as a highly desirable item, designed to give ultimate in pleasure, fulfilment and happiness. Through its clean aesthetic design and a fasade of quality and breakthrough technology, it achieves the confidence of potential consumers. Onania builds the myth of an ultimate product spreading uncontrollably as an incurable scourge.”
