ResidencyUnlimited features Wawrzyniec Gucewicz’s 2015 New York FilmNote
Residency Unlimited features Wawrzyniec Gucewicz 2015 New York FilmNote, an essential cinematic ode to New York City as we know it, consisting of a sequence of meanderings through many of NYC’s iconic touch points – Times Square, Central Park, NYC’s bustling streets and underground arteries among them. Vacillating between black and white that evokes the street photography of Elliott Erwitt and Helen Levitt, and the saturated color of 1970s film, Gucewicz’s New York FilmNote captures NYC street scenes, holiday parades, subway buskers, Christmas windows, backyard holiday celebrations among others– the relentless pulse of the city through everyday scenes and ambient sounds.
Wawrzyniec Gucewicz is an architect and film director, and a painter, who investigates human figure as a form in every aspect: from psychological, through social, to political layer of life. Gucewicz is also the 2020 artist-in-residence at Residency Unlimited, who currently had to return to Poland as a result of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and will be back in residence at RU in the fall. Gucewicz is safe with his family in Krakow, Poland.
