Piotr Bosacki

BORN 1977, Poznań

Graduate of the 2nd Degree State Fryderyk Chopin Music School and the Academy of Fine Arts, both in Poznań. He now works at the Poznań University of Arts at the Intermedia Department. Member of the music performance group KOT. Composer. His compositions were performed at the WRO Media Art Biennale 2011. Bosacki is the author of “Traumtagebuch” – a collection of witty literary miniatures inspired by dreams, with illustrations by Wojciech Bąkowski. In his work, Bosacki builds simple closed systems, which he then tests and develops, revealing their hidden potential. In animated films, he synthesizes animation and literary texts to the maximum and presents condensed philosophical thoughts. In an interview published in the “Do It Like That” exhibition catalogue (2010), when asked about metaphor, Bosacki replies: “(...) the difference between the cold structure and warm poetics definitely exists, but I actually don’t know, where and how the boundary runs between the structural and poetic layer of a piece of art.”

Bosacki’s Dracula is an animated film in which the artist creates a story based on knowledge in physics and biology, interweaved with personal confessions. The para-educational lecture presented by the artist changes into an existential tale. The multilayered film on perceiving the world and human relations is an accumulation of the artist’s philosophical thoughts. Meanwhile, underlying is Bosacki’s characteristic humour. Dracula won the Grand Prix of the 3rd Polish Short Film Festival Short Waves in Poznań in 2011. It received the audience award at the Polish Independent Cinema Review at the 36th Polish Film Festival.
