Endless VR segue – sensual essay-dream about identities in process
Since 2016, Wojciech Puś has been making Endless – a sensual combination of image, light and sound that creates a poetic essay-dream about identities in process. The work has taken diverse forms – from cinematic fiction to cinematic performances and free situations. Its essence is an informal community of performers with different social backgrounds, gender identities, nationalities or migration statuses from Chile, France, Mexico, Poland and Ukraine. The tangle of their personal stories, together with fragments of literary works, film works, diaries and dream records, creates a mosaic warp, which Puś situates in categories of queer abstraction. This aesthetic utopia entails a change in thinking about gender transformation, extending the experience of transformation to the most universal, existential experience of an individual.
Wojciech Puś – filmmaker, author of light installations and interactive objects, set designer. His post-emancipatory, analytical works refer to the sphere of queer spirituality and intimacy through their sublime cinematographic character. The artist’s works can be found, among others, in the collections of Filmoteka, the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Bunkier Sztuki in Krakow, as well as in private collections in Poland, Germany and Italy. His films have been presented at, among others, the New Horizons International Film Festival in Wrocław and the Artists’ Film Biennial at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London. He is an assistant professor at the Cinematography Department of PWSFTViT in Łódź.
