Two-dimensional Filip Turek

Filip Turek’s photographic, or more precisely image-based work, is closely related to his other creations, whether they are objects, videos or performances. Their premise is seemingly simple: a photographic image, whether found, digitally-manipulated or created personally by the artist, is to be transferred into a context other than the one in which it would normally function. The artist playfully demonstrates the relativity of reading information in images. He fully contemplates and manipulates the image into unusual positions. He most likes to work in the border area between art and non-art. He subtly shoves banal photos here and there across this boundary line. He shows how images can have many different types of content and, at the same time with their help, we can analyse our culture, our history and ourselves in an unusually focussed way.
