Michał Borczuch

Untitled (Together Again)

  • Theatre director Michał Borczuch along with a group of Warsaw and Berlin based artists look through public documents and private histories to explore queer grief and its rituals. He was inspired by the work of Félix Gonzalez-Torres, a Cuban-born American gay artist who died of AIDS in 1996. His minimalist installations and sculptures can be interpreted as records of desire and love, and finally of illness and death.
  • The intimate sphere, publicly disclosed, turns out to be a symptom of wider social problems. Borczuch and his team take a closer look at the past intertwinement of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and political changes, especially with the political transformation in Poland, as well as the contemporary situation of the LGBTIQ+ community to reflect on whether art can be a site of micro-resistance towards regimes that make certain experiences invisible.
  • Borczuch's work, originally implemented as a theatrical performance at HAU Hebbel am Ufer in Berlin, at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art takes on the form of a performative installation an exhibition open to viewers from 09/11 during the gallery's opening hours as well as the performances taking place in it on three different occasions.
