2015: Edgar Leciejewski

In residence May 18 - June 31, 2015

die Verweigerung der Realit&aumlt im Namen der Realit&aaumlt 2014

Edgar Leciejewski explores the various social and scientific uses of photography. His work employs an experimental, analytic approach to the medium of photography by using various techniques and media. Besides content-related issues and the reflection of his own work, he is interested in issues such as the rhetoric of the photographic series, the photographic genre, the composition, and how as much time as possible can fit in a single photographic image. His pictures are repositories of time that allow for the slowing down of the act of seeing. Leciejewski's work has been exhibited amongst others at Witte de With Center for Contempoary Art Rotterdam, Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Kunsthalle Wien, Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig.

Leciejewski lives and works in Leipzig, Germany.

This Residency is presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut in Toronto and with support from Fogo Island Arts, the Toronto Arts Council and North York Arts.
