Leipzig-based artist Edgar Leciejewski (b. 1977) spent six months as artist-in- residence with Fogo Island Arts in 2014. The catalog of new work accompanying his exhibition at the Fogo Island Gallery in 2015 includes large-scale collages, photographs of natural elements and precariously balanced sculptures composed of objects found on the island. Taken together, the two bodies of work archive the passing of time and raise questions about how we contemplate nature. Includes essays by art historian Bill Arning and curator Zoë Gray, as well as a conversation between the artist and internationally distinguished curator-writer Nicolaus Schafhausen. Edgar Leciejewski’s experimental, analytic photographic work explores various social and scientific uses of photography. His work investigates such issues as the rhetoric of the photographic series, genre, composition, and the question of how much time can fit within a single photographic frame. Leciejewski’s photographs are repositories of time that allow for a slowing down of the act of seeing.
