Szymon Szewczyk (b. 1989) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. He creates paintings, objects, collages and installations. In his projects, he focuses on the relationship between humans and their surroundings, both in terms of the material as well as cultural aspects. He likes to find a non-obvious connection between phenomena that seem to be distant. He is fascinated by the theories of conspiracies, creative quick fix, temporality or cheap DIY materials. Further, he is interested in the excess of the information, dubious scientific articles, deadpans, trash, imitations, disturbance, errors, bogus rituals, tamed exoticism, doubt in organised knowledge of the world.
Szymon Szewczyk is also the winner of Carte Blanche Prize. The exhibition’s opening will take place on the 13th of November.
