Piotr Uklanski: PornalikesPiotr Uklanski: Pornalikes

Published by Edition Patrick Frey.

Pornalikes is a book of portraits with a difference. Culling his materials from a 2002–2018 photo archive of porn actors who resemble or actually even portray celebrities and public figures, Polish artist Piotr Uklanski (born 1968) draws on men’s magazines such as Hustler and Loaded, as well as meme-culture material from websites and blogs, to assemble this challenging take on portraiture and celebrity . In Pornalikes Uklanski subverts the original expectations of traditional art-historical portraiture, exploring the pop-cultural tensions between sexual identity and exploitation, man and woman, fiction and reality and challenging both easy moral parameters and good taste. Pornalikes picks up where his cult series The Nazis and Real Nazis, also published by Edition Patrick Frey, left off.

Piotr Uklanski: Ottomania

Published by Bywater Bros. Editions.

Taxonomies of Orientalism in art, from Piotr Uklanski

Celebrated Polish-born artist Piotr Uklanski (born 1968) established himself in the mid-1990s with a diverse body of work examining the ever-changing relationship between identity, history and culture.

Continuing this investigation, Uklanski’s new book, Ottomania, traces the phenomenon of Orientalist portraiture over the past 500 years. This book contains over 200 paintings, drawings, prints and photography—images of men in turbans, theatrically embellished masculine dress, richly decorated fabrics, the codification of facial hair and the romantic settings of Ottoman or Persian court life—from Rembrandt, Zurbarán, Liotard, Tiepolo, Rubens, Delacroix, Schiele, Matisse, Picasso, de Chirico, Dalí, Balthus and Leonor Fini.

Uklanski orders the works roughly by theme, demonstrating how Western artists exploited key Orientalist signifiers, in dress, setting and pose, in order to portray their sitters—men, women and children—as worldly, romantic and in other ways exotic.

Piotr Uklanski: Real NazisPiotr Uklanski: Real Nazis

Published by Edition Patrick Frey.

In the fall of 1999, Edition Patrick Frey published Piotr Uklanski's artist book, The Nazis, which quickly went out of print and became a highly coveted cult book. Whereas The Nazis collected stills of actors playing Nazis in various Hollywood movies, Uklanksi's new book, Real Nazis, juxtaposes them with the real thing: Nazi party bigwigs, decorated "war heroes" and war criminals. Painstakingly culled from a variety of archives, this follow-up compilation superimposes fact upon fiction: the stagey, propagandistic imagery of the Third Reich is mixed in with the Nazi iconography of Hollywood, revealing an uncanny, even spooky, resemblance between the play-acting and real-life exponents of evil. Designed with the same format and production values as its predecessor, Real Nazis asks who are the "real" Nazis in this picture puzzle? What is a bona fide Nazi? Which pictures are "real" and which are "fake?" This hall of mirrors serves as a radical commentary on our alarming current condition, in which the lines between populist and fascistic politics are increasingly blurring. Then as now, "Beneath all the insignia and accoutrements of evil lurks the iconography of media kitsch and ridicule. It's all about the power of costumes and the costumes of power, about the glamour of evil, the glistening shine of fake medals made of fake gold."

Second Languages: Reading Piotr UklanskiSecond Languages: Reading Piotr Uklanski

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Donna Wingate, Marc Joseph Berg. Text by Geoffrey Batchen, Francesco Bonami, Gavin Brown, Paulo Herkenhoff, Chrissie Iles, Jenelle Porter, David Rimanelli, Christian Scheidemann, Adam Szymczyk, Catherine Wood.

Emerging in the mid-1990s, the Warsaw-born, New York-based artist Piotr Uklanski has created a provocative body of work that ranges across media, from installation, paper reliefs, tie-dye paintings, textile-based immersive sculptures and resin-based sculptures and paintings to photography, performance and a feature-length film, Summer Love. Second Languages is the first book to offer a comprehensive look at this iconoclastic artist. Taking the form of a reader, this richly illustrated collection of 11 essays--authored by internationally renowned art historians, curators and critics--analyzes Uklanski's protean output. While this book serves to critically situate Uklanski's work in art historical and theoretical contexts, it also provides some unconventional, humorous interpretations.

Piotr Uklanski: The Joy of PhotographyPiotr Uklanski: The Joy of Photography

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Geoffrey Batchen, Patrick Javault.

Piotr Uklanski’s The Joy of Photography series is named after a Kodak handbook for amateur photographers that has equipped generations of enthusiasts with the techniques necessary in their quest for the perfect shot. However, in the age of the digital camera, the practices advocated in the Kodak manual are now rarely deployed. “The guy who buys a special filter in order to better photograph the sunset has disappeared,” laments Uklanski. For this project, adopting this near-obsolete manual as a guide, Uklanski set out on a hunt to redeem its ideas and its perspectives. Exceptionally colorful and coolly artistic, the 50 photographs collected in this book flirt with abstraction, frequently eluding easy comprehension. This volume is the first complete presentation of Uklanski’s nostalgic homage.
The New York-based conceptual artist Piotr Uklanski was born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1968. He has had solo exhibitions at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise and at The Museum of Modern Art’s project space in New York.
