The first wide-ranging pictorial overview of the Polish artist’s lush visual universe

Emerging in the mid-nineteen-nineties, Piotr Uklanski (*1968 in Warschau) has created a provocative and wide ranging body of work that defies categorization, while engaging in nearly all forms of visual media such as installation, large-scale paper reliefs, tie-dye paintings, textile based immersive sculptures, resin-based sculptures and paintings, photography, performance, and a feature-length film, Summer Love. This is the first book to date that offers a comprehensive look at this iconoclastic artist, coming just at the mid-point of his already distinguished career. Taking the form of a “reader,” this richly illustrated collection of eleven essays provides insight and analysis of Uklanski’s protean output. While this book serves to critically situate Uklanski’s work in art historical and theoretical contexts, it also provides some unconventional, humorous interpretations in a several notable texts.
