ALTER EGO – PAWEŁ ŁYJAK

5th  August – 30th  Sept. 2017

Curator: Bartek Jarmoliński

This artist, who belongs to the young generation most often reaches for stories from his childhood. And these are complex stories in which the author is the main character. Actually, Paweł Łyjak creates a widely understood self-portrait from his life story. Regardless of the motifs presented in the paintings, graphics, drawings, whether they contain his likenesses or representations of other people, they all describe the author’s complex personality. Being a collector, a gatherer of unnecessary, somewhat worn out, useless items, the author creates objects and sets of objects with an unfamiliar history that anyone can create by themselves. In Łyjak's work, the past is always present.
