Peter Land – Naked at Zachęta, Warszawa

Why would you want to film naked girls? But for art’s sake, of course. Everybody would give this same answer. Peter Land did, too. Art is a serious joke. No-one is ever tired of provocative contemporary art, even if the bored person was Peter Land himself. Do not worry, you would enjoy it anyways. He likes to be in trouble – especially if that’s how you call life – and making a piece of art out of it. The whole creating process is a result of his own existential confusion. He wants to think of the many falls he can handle, or just go towards his own intimate extremes. Sometimes his artworks have no right answers, but what counts are questions, eventually.
