A survey of Filip Markiewicz's multidisciplinary practice over the last six years.
Luxemburger artist of Polish origin, Filip Markiewicz works mainly with drawing, but also with video and installations, creating a consistent visual body of works. The debate of everyday issues, political agendas, and the many consequences of capitalist society are at the core of his research. Markiewicz questions some aspects of widespread Western discontent: social welfare, migration, wars, religious fundamentalism, the use of national and private wealth. Ultimately, with his multidisciplinary practice, Mankiewicz invites the viewer to reflect on the paradoxes of a Europe facing a severe existential crisis, while still trying to embody the values for which migrants risk their lives.
Presented on ARTSY between 12 August and 30 September 2020.
