Vita of the artist

Leitmotifs of Via Lewandowsky's art

Dealing with the everyday is one of Via Lewandowsky's leitmotifs. Among other things, the artist deals with everyday objects or with communication, its failure and its complications.

Everyday objects and situations

Via Lewandowsky brings wonder and amazement to the everyday. He deals with seemingly trivial everyday communication situations or everyday objects in order to derive further questions and themes from them. He often elicits paradoxes, absurdities or unexpected complexity from them.

The satirical in Via Lewandowsky's work

Many of his sculptural-installative works aim to deconstruct and reshape the meaning of the objects and situations presented. Via Lewandowsky treats them with satire, anti-pathos and tragic-comedy. This links his art to Fluxus and Surrealism.
