Jan Szewczyk

Jan Szewczyk (Jan Szewczyk)


Jan Szewczyk is a multimedia artist, effort- lessly moving in the sphere of objects and video installations. His work is characterized by incisive observation and reinterpretation of banal subversive situations – in this way the artist challenges our habitual perceptions of reality.
Szewczyk’s work oscillates between various themes, which is why it is difficult to specify the main topic of his explorations.
One of his areas of research is that of growing up and masculinity. A reflection of these themes appears at various stages of his work, from the curious act: Good bye
home sweet home (2008) to the Kozacy (2012) project. The second area in which Szewczyk moves concerns the perception of reality. The project I like all these pictures (2009), where the artist is both the curator of the exhibition and the material, combines these two areas.
Since 2012, thanks to work on the set of the film Performer, the artist has increasingly boldly explored film space and has tried to find a common denominator for the world of cinematography and visual arts.
