Ceremony (2016)

The performance is referring to the series of photographs created by the amateur photographer Ryszard Kisiel during the years of “Operation Hyacinth”, the Polish government’s anti-gay crackdown (1985-1986), especially to his “Female Indian Shaman” series. “Ceremony” short-circuits “protoqueer” aesthetic in communist Poland and the Candomblé rituals of afro-Brazilian origins.
