Wojciech GilewiczBORN 1974, Biłgoraj
Gilewicz’s paintings pretend to be fragments of walls, windowsills, flagstones, etc., and remain almost invisible to the viewer. The artist leaves them in public spaces, exposing them to the elements or the intervention of third parties. The blurring of the boundary between reality and its artistic representation, and the limits of human vision are themes that Gilewicz explores also in video and photographic projects. Wojciech Gilewicz graduated with an honorary mention from the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in 1999, where he studied painting under Prof. Leon Tarasewicz. Since his 2000 debut at Biała Gallery, he has regularly shown his work at venues such as Foksal Gallery, Zendai MoMA Shanghai, CCA Ujazdowski Castle, SculptureCenter New York, and the Zachęta National Gallery of Art.
