The Judge is a sculpture whose shape alludes to a traditional bust on a pedestal. The sculpture, made of weak and trivial materials held to- gether by black and partially burnt tape, and placed on an excessively tall plinth, may suggest a study on the figure of a judge.

Konrad Smoleński describes his work as a mix of “spectacular pyrotechnic effects” and “minimal punk aesthetic.” Smoleński’s works frequently have an audio component, which might take the form of noise, music, or noise music. Speakers and microphones are also frequent motifs in his installations, appearing in overwhelming configurations and quantities, often alongside combustible materials and flames. The artist has an openly anarchic disposition, which manifests in the works as a sense of anxiety, disorientation, and awe. Smoleński works in multiple mediums including photography, videos, installation, sculpture, and performance. He is also an active experimental musician, and performs in guerrilla concerts with his group BNNT.
