A masterful approach

Photographer by origins, Placek’s masterful approach to visual media renders life to those in-between backstage moments captured on polaroid that have risen to fame due to their unfiltered modus operandi. At the forefront of art milieu since the age of 17, Placek’s ingenuity and uncompromising outlook has secured him a meritorious list of collaborations, including the likes of Vanessa Beecroft and Terence Koh to Yoko Ono.  Nonetheless, the most prominent of those ‘portraits’  is a 7 minute  3D film of the revered performance artist Marina Abramovic that premiered at Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 and was later introduced as a site specific installation at MAI, short for Marina Abramovic Institute.
