Witek Orski (1985, Poland)

Both in his art practice and in his theoretical research, Orski is foremost interested in photography. What interests him the most is the issue of the context and viewer dependent process of creation of what we call “the meaning of a photograph”. In that matter, what he’s trying to focus on and demonstrate in his works are things that pose resistance to the ‘transparency’ that we intuitively ascribe to the medium of photography. In practice it means applying post-conceptual strategies of trompe l’oeil, tautology, empty metaphor, repetition, digital manipulation and extended preparation process in order to open the images for broad existential and political interpretations.
