I Am Not Your Father (working title), 2013. HD video projection with sound

We warmly welcome our new artist in residence Filip Kwiatkowski who will stay at OPEKTA until early October.
Filip’s practice investigates the relationship between cinema and the computer screen, treating new media as a language in order to construct narratives about immigration. He is spending his time at Opekta finishing a video work that attempts to explore how cinematic documentary motifs are used in the space of everyday communication.
Filip was born in Warsaw, Poland and grew up in New York City. Recently having completed an MFA at Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, CA he is currently a fellow at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne.
At the end of his residency Filip will give an artist talk about his current work in progress. The exact dates will be announced in due time. He will also present his work in the context of the „Offene Ateliers“ (Open Studios), which will take place from September 26-27 at OPEKTA.
