GRZEGORZ DROZD

IS A VISUAL ARTIST WHO MAKES USE OF A WIDE ARRAY OF MEDIA, FROM CLASSICAL FORMS OF PAINTING,

TO SITE-SPECIFIC INSTALLATIONS AND FEATURE-LENGTH FILMS. DROZD’S WORKS GROW FROM A VIGILANT OBSERVATION OF THE ABSURDITIES OF EVERYDAY LIFE. THE ARTIST OFTEN REFERS TO THE UTOPIAN IDEALS

OF MODERNISM TO EXPOSE THE ABSENCE OF PRAGMATIC JUSTIFICATION FOR ABSTRACT IDEAS. IN HIS OWN WORDS, HE’S AN “ARTISTIC NOMAD, WHO FREQUENTLY CHANGES HIS VANTAGE POINT ON THE SUBJECT MATTERS HE’S WORKING ON, IN ORDER TO CREATE MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES”. THE ARTIST PERFORMS A MULTI-LAYERED ANALYSIS: FOR EXAMPLE, UNIVERSAL A WORK THAT REFERS TO THE HOUSING PROBLEMS AN ESTATE IN WARSAW, OR IN HIS EXHIBITION LACK, WHICH DEALS WITH THE OUT-DATED METHODS OF TEACHING AT WARSAW’S ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS. DROZD’S WORK IS PERMEATED BY A PECULIAR WIT, USED BY THE ARTIST TO PUT THE VIEWER INTO SITUATIONS OF AMBIGUITY AND TO ASK A GOGOL-LIKE QUESTION:

“WHAT ARE YOU LAUGHING AT?”
