Dominik Lejman (PL)

In 2018, Dominik Lejman received the prestigious Visual Arts Prize from the Akademie der Künste (DE) in recognition of his contributions to the medium of painting and in particular his engagement with time. His beautiful, abstract canvases provide a temporary stage for light-painting performances that explore themes of human anonymity as well as the struggle against political determinism in a modern, technological world. His work blurs the line between reality and a sense of constructed fantasy, opening our imagination in the same way a magician does when he dares us to see the invisible.

Dominik Lejman’s (b. 1969, Gdańsk, PL) works have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world, including: After the Wall at Moderna Museet Stockholm (1999; SE), Berlin’s Hamburger Bahnhof (2000; DE), the Polish Pavilion at the 9th Venice Biennale of Architecture (2004; IT), the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum (2008; JP) and Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (2022; DE).
