Krzysztof Leon Dziemaszkiewicz is a total artist – performer, dancer, choreographer, costume designer, and creator of images and objects made using his own “taping” technique, which utilises tape and secondary materials. He speaks of his work as “a process of creation, of constructing something new. It can manifest as a new work of art in the form of a painting, an idea for a performance, the act of organising a studio or working in the garden. I feel fulfilled and fully satisfied immersing myself in the process.”

The exhibition is a transgenic and transsexual journey into the depths of <3 and the artist’s extraordinary sensitivity, naturalness, and spontaneity. Leon’s work is full of contradictions; it is “shivering and trembling” with emotions and feelings, while his refusal to compromise and observe restraint allows for a unique and inimitable artistic expression. The art of Leon Dziemaszkiewicz taps into instincts and sensations, with honesty as its ultimate principle. The artist touches and moves his audience with his directness and authenticity, raising questions about the boundaries between animality and humanity, pain and pleasure, passion and peace.

BIO: actor, performer, and choreographer. Between 1987–1995, he was a dancer and choreographer’s assistant at the Theatre of Expression in Sopot. Since 1995, he has been running his own theatre, “Look at my Lips”; first in Gdańsk and since 1997 in Berlin. Currently, Dziemaszkiewicz focuses on creating images using tape – he named this technique “taping”.
