Trained as a painter Wojciech Gilewicz views painting as an activity and a process rather than a flat decorative object. He is also a photographer known for his“Them” series of photographic double self-portraits started in 2002, which continues to date. Wojciech Gilewicz is also an author of installations and videos. The artist often performs himself in front of his video camera. In 2019 the book on Gilewicz' Asian video works will be published jointly by two Polish contemporary art institutions: Galeria Labirynt in Lublin and Arsenal Gallery in Bialystok. Wojciech Gilewicz’s art provokes reflection on the mechanisms which govern perception and its cultural conditioning. The artist draws viewer’s attention to what we see and what we commonly perceive as art and why.
