Prey. The Pathetic Existence of the Worm
- What is the sound of the process of decomposition? Can decaying be heard? Can a parasitic fungus gain complete control of its host without killing it? Piotr Bruch presents a world where that which used to be microscopic has become macroscopic, and perversion combines with decay. Like a parasite preying on its host, the artist’s audiovisual installation claims the space of the Project Room at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw.
- The Project Room is a venue for presenting the work of young Polish artists. All exhibitions are produced specially for the space and are premieres. This season, we have already hosted the shows of Kornelia Dzikowska, Jan Baszak, and Adelina Cimochowicz, while waiting for their turn are Sebastian Sebulec and Marek Wodzisławski.
- Piotr Bruch (b. 1993) graduated from the Art Academy of Szczecin’s Faculty of Painting and New Media in 2019 with a major in experimental film. He works with sound and moving pictures, producing animated films using traditional hand-drawn techniques. Building on his experience as animator, he also makes objects and audio installations as well as experimental music. Since 2019, he has been assistant to Adam Witkowski, PhD, in the Sound and Image Workshop of his alma mater’s Studio of Experimental Film.
