Rafal Wilk

In his works he mixes document and video art , his interventions in public
space are both “cold” (material) Found Footage as well as “generative”,
criticizing the technology (“technical culture”), Software Art. In one of
his documentaries Rafał Wilk makes an interview with local DJ Backspace.
The screen split into two shows the statements of the interviewee
about art, film, life and at the same time it shows parts of a number of
different videos. His statements reveal specific, original an somewhat
surreal perception of reality. Other piece by Rafał Wilk, composed of photography
and film - „Zeeb Risky” is a form of a document, a short story
of a polar explorer, at the same time being a specific realization of the
author’s dream of travelling, where video becomes the alternative way
of fulfilment. The form of the film – both documentary and phantasmagoric
– is a question about placing the human, his internal and external
identification and communication with surrounding environment.
