Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art Presents: Artist Talk and Polish Tour with Przemek Pyszczek
Tuesday, April 3, 2018: 6pm & 7pm
On Tuesday, April 3rd at 7pm please join us for an artist talk by cherished Polish-born, Winnipeg-raised artist Przemek Pyszczek programmed in conjunction with his current solo exhibition: Białystok (March 31-June 10, 2018).
On the special occasion of Pyszczek’s first major solo exhibition in Canada, he will speak about his practice, moving between the traditional artist talk format and a more conversational, performative approach, animated with anecdotal stories and images.
Przemek Pyszczek is a Polish born, Winnipeg raised artist. After living in Berlin for the last eight years, he has relocated to rural Poland to continue his artistic research. Through architecturally inspired sculptures, installations and paintings Pyszczek’s work traces Poland’s transition since the fall of the iron curtain and also serves as an ongoing journey to rediscover his own past. He obtained his Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Manitoba in 2007. Pyszczek’s work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, most recently presenting a solo exhibition at Galerie Derouillon, Paris. His work has been included in Forever Never Comes, Museo Archeologico e d’Arte della Maremma, Grosseto, Italy; 1989 Belenius, Stockholm; Sandomir, Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles; Industrius, Window Gallery, Winnipeg; Building Systems, Berthold Pott, Cologne; and Corporalitas, Open Forum, Berlin.
