Jakub Jan Ceglarz is a Polish artist and researcher based in Birmingham, UK. He has exhibited his work nationally (Edinburgh, London, Birmingham, Blackpoll) and internationally (Portugal, Belgium, Hungary, Italy). His practice is concerned with renegotiating social, political, historical and material structures of layers. He is challenging them by critically engaging with the sexual, visceral and mundane forms of homespun aesthetics. His work takes the form of performance-based, p a l i m p s e s t u o u s photographs, films, and installations. He holds a PhD (AHRC – M3C) in Fine Art from Birmingham School of Art, Birmingham City University (2018). For his work, he received the Mike Holland Prize (2013) and Gertrude Ashton Bowater Bequest Award (2012).
