Michael Borowski uses photography, installation, and performance to address ways in which psychology, desire, and societal values are expressed in urban environments. Metaphors of construction and building run throughout his interdisciplinary art practice. His projects explore themes of migration, intimacy, queer space, and the blurring of public and private life.
His work has been exhibited in the Louisville Photo Biennial (Louisville, KY), Flux Factory (New York, NY), Prairie Center for the Arts (Peoria, IL), and Espace Projet (Montreal, QC.) His installations have been included in the public art and performance festivals Art in Odd Places and FIGMENT (New York, NY.) He has been awarded residencies at Elsewhere, Millay Colony, and Est Nord Est. He holds an MFA from the University of Michigan, and a BFA from the University of New Mexico. He currently lives and works in Blacksburg, VA and is an Assistant Professor of Studio Art at Virginia Tech.
