23. July 2013 - 31. July 2013

Zdzisław (Ghislave) Sosnowski (b. 1947) graduated from the Wrocław Academy of Arts (PWSSP Wrocław).  He is involved in experimental cinema and photography, performance and audio art. Sosnowski combines his creative work with being an active animator of artistic circles and an art theorist. In the 1970s, he was one of the most dynamic figures of the neo-avant-garde movement, the interests of which borders on conceptual and post-conceptual art. He was one of the first artists to utilize the language of pop culture and create his self-image.

Sosnowski’s work, dating back to the first half of 1970s, is an investigation of the media (film and photography) which reveal his interest in the semiotics of image and the characteristic tendency to de-authorize art, to leave the notion of uniqueness and the existential load of art.
