Stanisław Dróżdż worked with short texts and words, or individual elementary objects, drawings and letters, to analyse the reality of language and its visual forms. His works balance on a subtle boundary between drawing and pictorial representations. He used the term 'Pojęciokształty' (figures of meaning) to refer to his work. With his highly conceptual work, he represented an international avant-garde in Poland, the Concrete Poetry. Words and characters are understood as individual forms, which take on visual qualities and transform into images. In 1953, after an international symposium in Stockholm, Concrete Poetry was established as artistic and poetic strategy mainly in Western Europe.
Stanisław Dróżdż represented Poland at the Venice Biennale in 2003 with a large installation 'Alea Jacta Est / The Dice has been cast'. The artist welcomed the visitors to try out their fortune by throwing six dice and to spot the combination on the walls. The walls of the pavilion were covered with nearly 250.000 dice, displaying 46.656 combinations.
For the European Capital of Culture Wroclaw 2016 a number of his wallpainting were realized on different buildings in the city. Among the pieces was also 'Zapominanie', which is also part of the Art Collection Telekom.
