Wojciech Gilewicz (PL)
Wojciech Gilewicz is a Polish-born New York-based visual artist. Trained as a painter he views painting as an activity and a process rather than a flat decorative object. Gilewicz is also an author of installations and videos. The artist also often performs himself in front of his video camera. Gilewicz is also a photographer. In his “Them” series of photographic double self-portraits started in 2002, which continues to date the artist tells a story of loneliness, longing and non-fulfillment. At the same time, the ongoing project tackles the problem of blurring the boundaries between reality and its artistic representation – the issue which has long been present in his work.
