Born in 1983, Grzegorz Stefański graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland and Photography at the Department of Visual Communication at the University of Arts in Poznań, Poland. Currently, he continues his artistic education at Mirosław Balka Studio of Spatial Activities at the Fine Arts Academy in Warsaw. In his latest photographic and video projects Grzegorz Stefański introduces suspension of epistemology. He does not accept current state of reality and artificially creates situations at the nexus of psychology, philosophy and ethics. He has presented his works at individual exhibitions (New Face in Lookout Gallery, Warsaw, Poland, Go-See in Zpafiska Gallery, Cracow, Poland, emptybottles in Goldex-Poldex Gallery, Cracow, Poland) as well as at group shows (in Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, in MoMa PS1 in New York, in Bunkier Sztuki Gallery in Cracow, and during Wro Media Art Bienalle in Wroclaw).
