Join Multidisciplinary artist Andrew Ondrejcak (B.F.A., performing arts, 2002) for Works & Process, where he will explain the inspiration behind his work, the intense collaborative nature of it and its intended, long-term effects on the artisans with whom he works.

 

The work of American artist Andrew Ondrejcak www.andrewondrejcak.com is a fusion of theater, opera, film and fashion.

 

From 2015-2019, he created a series of “landscape plays” in collaboration with artisans through the United Nations’ Ethical Fashion Initiative. What began as a typical process of costume design evolved into a deep collaboration between Ondrejcak and artisans in Mali, Burkina Faso, Afghanistan and Haiti. The result of their work is a stunning, unique, collage-like visual world in which the various artisans' cultures, histories and aesthetics are fused into a complex cast of characters. The first in this series was featured in Vogue Italia. Inspired by the paintings of Pieter Bruegel, Ondrejcak's landscape plays focus on a series of individual figures as they struggle to connect. Despite having different stories and diverse aesthetics, this network of unrelated figures create a portrait of the interconnectivity of all humans, with each individual both the center of the world and part of something they cannot comprehend.

 

Presented by The School of Foundations Studies at SCAD.
