Lewandowsky has a rare instinct that enables him to head straight for the blind spots in public debate. Concentrating on the field of human inadequacy, each one of his works is per se a straight motion of no confidence in himself as well as in its spectators. Clear-sighted, cryptic and radical to the point of being impossible to represent, he has planned spaces and lent unconventional form to objects, images and sounds. He is an illusionist who has never had any illusions. For him, fulfilment of wishes culminates in complete scenarios for exhibitions. With no effort whatsoever to encode his works, but in conscious opposition to the zeitgeist formulae of the art market, he examines the weaknesses in human culture as well as his own failures. The art that emerges opposes self-certitude – it is unexpected, surreal (à la Fluxus) and, sometimes, very close to a radical awareness of what is really finite. (Christoph Tannert)
