JERZY GOLISZEWSKI (b.1981) was born in Warsaw where he studied graphics and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts. His practice includes paintings, drawings, graphics, and ceramic objects. He creates sculptural installations distilled from natural and folkloric forms that manifest his fascination with complex and intricate structures. His works are labor-intensive and rooted in traditions of craftsmanship and in the physicality of materials.
During his residency at SPACES, Goliszewski will construct a site-specific work in interaction with the unique community and architecture of Cleveland's historic industrial Flats district.
CEC ARTSLINK is an international arts organization whose programs encourage and support exchange of artists and cultural managers between the United States and Eastern and Central Europe, Russia, Central Asia and the Caucasus. With the notion that the arts are a society's most deliberate and complex means of communication, and that artists and arts administrators can help nations overcome long histories of reciprocal distrust, insularity and conflict, CEC ArtsLink promotes communication and understanding through innovative, mutually beneficial collaborative projects.
SPACES is committed to advancing the artist's vision. By providing freedom, resources and an audience, SPACES enables artists to engage the public in a vital dialogue about contemporary art and by interacting directly with them, it promotes excellence and experimentation to produce challenging gallery exhibitions, public programs, residencies and publications.
