Paweł Wojtasik Videoworks: Volume 1

Exploring climate change, the destruction of nature, and industrial pollution, these four works by Paweł Wojtasik paint horrific yet meditative landscapes of global infrastructures including meat production, waste treatment, and laboratory experimentation. Often focusing on human and animal interactions in the modern world, Wojtasik's camera studies the subtleties of interspecies connection in a clinical way, lingering on the power and human control of nature.

"For Wojtasik, making art is about facing fear — the fear of death, of pain, of loss, even the fear of seeing certain kinds of imagery on screen — and challenging taboos."

— Scott MacDonald, Perception as Transcendence: Interview with Paweł Wojtasik, Film Quarterly, Vol. 65, 2011
