The Polish artist Tymek Borowski (*1984, lives in Warsaw) talks to Sandro Droschl about his artistic practice and how it has been shaped by the political climate in Poland. In his most recent works Borwoski, who originally comes from painting, addresses the question of how digital information and data can be depicted visually in an “analog“ way. This tendency is already evident in the portrait painting seen in the exhibition. His video works often revolve around his main interests, such as the meaning of producing contemporary art and integrating it into the context of other activities.
Tymek Borowski (born 1984, lives in Warsaw) is painter and author of movies and digital images. He studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw at Professor Leon Tarasewicz’s studio (graduation in 2009). Between 2008 and 2012 he co-founded a few art collectives and galleries, the Internet-based project Billy Gallery (2012) and the experimental design company Czosnek Studio (2012). Tymek Borowski was awarded the VIEWS Deutsche Bank Foundation Audience Award (2013) and “Polityka” Passport Award (2016).
