Paweł Althamer

(b. 1967)                                                                                                                                              Sculpture, performance, installation, video. His work is formally varied, employing various media. He creates sculptural self-portraits and appears in performances and video in order to experience the physicality of his body whilst delineating his own psychological boundaries. In his actions, in which he engages entire communities, he sets out to create a communal ambience and make people face one another through art. He questions the meaning of monumental sculptures through the scale of his own works and the random nature of the materials that he uses.
