Wawrzyniec Kolbusz

Wawrzyniec Kolbusz (b. 1977)

In his works, he engages with the topics of simulation, substitution and reference as applied to the phenomenon of how the imagery itself tantalises the viewer. His artistic interest revolves around the hidden or generally unrealised patterns of social, cultural and political behaviour, approached from the conceptual angle. He often uses the aesthetics and minimalistic language of documentary photography to communicate. His works are marked by ambiguity and the relationship between medium and culture. Lives and works in Warsaw, Poland.
