Winnaar Vincent (2004)

Between 1988 and 1993 Althamer attended classes in the Sculpture Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warswaw. Starting his career as an artist he began creating lifelike figures made of natural materials (hair, fabrics, wax etc.) using themes of loneliness, alienation and isolation.
In the middle of the 1990s Althamer´s interests shifted to social issues, in particular to reflection upon the role and place of art in large cities.

Himself a resident of a vast housing block in the Brodno district of Warswaw, he observed, collected and documented examples of the spontaneous artistic activities of area residents (BRODNO, A.R. WARSAW, 1997). A remarkable recent action consisted of living for a time in a house erected within a tree standing opposite the windows of the newly created gallery of the Foksal Gallery Foundation (2001/02). A similar treehouse he built close to the entrance of the ´Giardini´ of the Venice Biennal 2003.
