Blending Into Cityscapes
September 30, 2013   
Article's tools:

Video projects in which artist and filmmaker Wojciech Gilewicz incorporates paintings into cityscapes are on show at the Zachęta Projects Room in an exhibition entitled Arcus.

The videos are Gilewicz’s latest, made while he was touring Asia and the United States in recent years. The projects document his painting and performance “interventions” in urban areas and, occasionally, natural landscapes.

Gilewicz is interested in social issues, especially labor, as a fundamental part of human existence. He also explores the lives of social outcasts and their struggle to stay afloat.

Shot in Seoul, Visitor (2010) is almost like a feature film telling the story of a short visit a stranger from a different culture pays to the city, attempting to physically blend into the urban environment. Bat Yam (2009) was, in turn, shot in an industrial district of Tel Aviv where Gilewicz interacted with local workers, machines and other physical aspects of the site. Meanwhile, Arcus (2012), made while Gilewicz was in Japan, features imagery that calls to mind consecutive stages of human life and the social roles people play during each stage.

Until Nov. 3; Zachęta Projects Room; 3 Gałczyńskiego St.
