Exhibition & Residency:
August 1 – September 30, 2011
Artist Michal Grochowiak is a graduate of multimedia department at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan. He also studied cinematography at the department of Radio and Television at Silesian University in Katowice. Since 2004 he has been a member of Group 4!, and since 2009, he has been a member of Starter Association & Gallery. His work was shown at many solo and collective exhibitions in Poland and abroad. Michal lives and works in Warsaw.
Michal has a deep respect for classical painting, and history of modern photography. That is why he is trying to develop his own style of thinking about photography. Quite often the aim of his works is to find metaphysics in ordinary places, and in simple everyday situations. Paradoxically, working with short time of shutter, and with situations which are instantaneous. Michal is trying to create pictures of ‘continuous time’.
