Filip Markiewicz (born in 1980) is a multidisciplinary Luxembourg artist of Polish origin, who expresses himself through different mediums, including drawing, video and installation. Always seeking explanations for our daily lives, he explores the omnipresence of images and puts into perspective the message they convey. He submits current issues to a critical and political approach, and thus emphasizes the emptiness of our world submerged by visual overproduction where information becomes reality rather than the opposite. In 2015, Markiewicz represented Luxembourg at the 56th Venice Biennale with Paradiso Lussemburgo.
