Jacek Zachodny (http://jacekzachodny.pl/) was born in Wrocław in 1969. A graduate of the local Academy of Fine Arts, he also studied Archaeology at the University of Wrocław. He works with installation, objects, painting, video, performance, actions in public space and socio-artistic projects. He has made videos for theatre performances, e.g. The Rainbow Tribune by Monika Strzępka and Paweł Demirski. In his practice he often addresses the issues of memory, past and transience, but above all he is interested in interpersonal relationships. He is a regular contributor to Rita Baum, an art magazine, and author of the book Elektryka duszy [Electrics of the Soul]. He co-runs the ArtBrut Gallery in Wrocław, working with artists with intellectual and motor disabilities. His works can be found in public collections, including the Zachęta Lower Silesian Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow. He has participated in exhibitions in Poland and abroad, in venues such as BWA Wrocław, Galeria Entropia, Bunkier Sztuki, MOCAK and Galeria Potocka (Cracow). He has also showed his works at the WRO International Media Art Biennale and the New Horizons International Film Festival.
