SLAWOMIR ELSNER

Wodzislaw Śląski, Poland, 1976. Lives and works in c.

Slawomir Elsner uses drawings, paintings and photographs to meticulously trace the aesthetic conventions employed by other people to emphasize their identity. Elsner is concerned with forms, conventions and styles taken out of control of officials, born spontaneously and unwittingly “among the people.” Also present is the drive towards anesthetizing of both one’s own environment as well as “the world” as represented by the media.
