Piotr Bosacki

Complete Nonsense

video, 7'; collages in black frames (5); 50x50 cm

The animation Complete Nonsense by Piotr Bosacki intertwines two stories: the first focuses on the artists dependencies and obligations, depicted by a figure of a man with a string of objects trailing behind him. In the second part, Bosacki tells a surreal story about intestinal parasites that leave the human body and, together with his intestines, lead a second life in sewers. Thanks to the arbitrariness of both the narrative and the artistic means, this macabre, absurd and grotesque tale becomes more intriguing.

Piotr Bosacki, a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań and the State Music School No. Fryderyk Chopin in Warsaw; the founder along with Wojciech Bąkowski, Iza Tarasewicz, and Konrad Smoleński of the Penerstwo group and co-founder of the now defunct KOT band, author of the book Traumtagebuch. For his work Dracula (2010) he received the audience award in the Independent Cinema Competition at the Polish Feature Film Festival in Gdynia. His work often combines collages and minimalist animation, as well as an ironic narrative style.

In his video works, Bosacki often animates paper-cut collages and household items such as strings, blocks, hooks, and pencils. His workshop often becomes an additional installation within his exhibitions.
