Luxembourger of Polish origin, Filip Markiewicz (born in 1980) is a multidisciplinary artist expressing himself through drawing, video, music, theatre and installations thereby creating a visual body of work using diversified media. His work is not intending to be a kind of political activism, but rather to develop an almost surreal language consolidating different expressions. In 2015 Filip Markiewicz represented the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg at the 56th Venice Biennale with his project "Paradiso Lussemburgo". In 2017 he produced his first theater play "Fake Fiction" at the Theater Basel. In 2018, he will present his monographic exhibition "Celebration Factory" at the Casino Luxembourg - Forum d`Art Contemporain.
