Andrej Polukord

Andrej Polukord (b. 1990) is an artist based in Vienna and Vilnius. A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts and co-recipient of the 2016 Kunsthalle Prize Vienna, draws on painting, installation, performance, and video art to create unpredictable environments and absurd situations that produce double meanings and ambiguity.

During the Alternative Education programme he will involve himself into making domestic and everyday object cut-outs  out of un-recycled plastic materials typically used on cargo truck tents and roadside billboards into something akin to public space installations. With a quirky but semi serious gesture, the artist plans to reassign semantic value of these materials and bring them back to public space as completely different entities.
