Biography of Jarosław Kozłowski
Jarosław Kozłowski (born 1945 in Srem, Poland) is one of the most important representatives of the conceptual movement in Polish art. His works consist chiefly of installations that incorporate media such as drawings, light, sound, photography, and objects. His practice is marked by a critical-analytical discourse with art and the mechanisms of perception, self-reflection, and the relationship between meaning and context.
Since 1967 Kozłowski has taught drawing and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. He founded the Akumulatory 2 Gallery in Poznan, where he lives today. Jarosław Kozłowski’s work has been exhibited in both solo and group shows across Europe. In 1990 he was included in the exhibition Rhetorical Image at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.
