BACK

Edgar Leciejewski’s (b. 1977) point of departure is often his personal experience of perceiving the world and through his work he examines this perception of reality and especially how photography creates a membrane between man and reality. He is particularly drawn to the way in which photography contains and mediates information. Leciejewski has said that as an artist he uses photography as a means to escape into reality. His works can be understood as anthropological field notes from this excursion into reality; meditations on the transformation from physical appearance into information which is inextricably linked with photography as a documentary medium.

Edgar Leciejewski studied at Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig. He has exhibited widely both in Germany and abroad and his work is included in private in public collections such as Sammlung F.C. Gundlach, Hamburg; UBS Art Collection, Zürich and Zabludowicz Collection, London. Leciejewski has published several books including Himmel ohne Wolken (Berlin, 2011), and Ghosts and Flowers / How to Build a Sun (Leipzig, 2011). Edgar Leciejewski lives and works in Leipzig.
