Home Years František Kowolowski
Finalist - 2000

František Kowolowski

Born in 1967

František Kowolowski deals with painting, performance, installation, video and photography. In his works, he also makes use of his experience with the art scene. He focuses on ephemerality, artistic “recycling”, the close relation between a certain thing and a certain place and the manipulation of meaning in a given context. In his installation for the Jindřich Chalupecký Award, he has used real objects from the Moravian Gallery in Brno and added a video recording entitled “Witnesses – Sellers of Ideas”; a kind of a parable of the relation between the art scene and the public.
