Philomene Pirecki

Images | Biography | Exhibitions

 

Philomene Pirecki’s practice deals with how time, memory, and perception are represented and manifested through the production of images and objects. Using originals and copies, often re-photographing her own work to generate new iterations within the studio and the exhibition space, Pirecki considers how images act as an analog for memory, unpredictably accumulating, persisting, mutating, or disappearing.

Philomene Pirecki lives and works in London, where she founded the curatorial platform Occassionals, a peripatetic studio based project with artists, writers and curators. She has exhibited internationally Including PACE Gallery, London; Unosunove, Rome, Italy; Truth and Consequences, Geneva, Green on Red gallery, Dublin, Ireland, MOT International, Brussels, Neumeister Bar-Am Berlin, Germany; Wilfried Lentz Gallery, Rotterdam, Holland; Cristina Guerra Gallery, Lisbon, Portugal. Pirecki was shortlisted for the Max Mara Art Prize for Women 2013-15.
