For his monographic exhibition at the Konschthal Esch, Filip Markiewicz occupies the first two levels of the building, presenting Instant Comedy, an ensemble of new productions whose different content influence each other mutually as they are transposed physically and visually from one artistic form to another.
The exhibition is thus transformed into an ensemble of objects and images organized in the form of a “visual essay”, a non-linear aesthetic narration that reflects the continuous changes of a news feed that is a source of constant inspiration for him. For the artist, the speed of events and their media repercussions prevent us from maintaining a distance from situations. Anything can escape us at any time. Everything is floating, flowing, changing. This is a version of “liquid society”, the society of social networks and their excesses.
Filip Markiewicz (born Esch-sur-Alzette, LU, 1980) is a multi-discipline artist who uses different mediums and cultural codes to develop an œuvre of total art that reflects today’s world.
This exhibition is organised in the context of the inaugurations for Esch2022 – European Capital of Culture.
With the support of Kultur | lx - Arts Council Luxembourg
