He is continuing his artistic education as a scholarship holder at London’s Slade School of Art. He is based in London and Warsaw. In his work, he often employs moving images, situating himself between video-art, filmmaking and camera-directed and dedicated performance art. His viewers and protagonists of his works are led by the artist into an ambiguous space that questions widely-accepted social norms and perspectives. Stefański explores themes related to identity, interpersonal relations and mimesis. His reductionist aesthetics often expose the powers behind produced images, placing the individual in the existential position of self-definition. The artist calls this technique “portraying”. He debuted in 2010 with a solo exhibition emptybottles in Krakow’s Goldex-Poldex Cooperative. Since then, his works have been exhibited during Manifesta 11 in Zurich (2016), at MoMa PS1 in New York (2010), in Warsaw’s Nowy Theater, at Pasti cio Cerere Foundation in Rome (2014), as well as in London’s Bloomsbury Theatre, Krakow’s Bunkier Sztuki (2014), and during Wro Media Art Biennale in Wrocław (2015).
