"Endless: the Living Set" – a concert by Wojciech Puś & Anton Tsyhulskyi
»Endless: The Living Set« is a narrative concert presented by Wojciech Puś (voice, electronics, field recordings) and Anton Tsyhulskyi (voice, electronics, rhythm). A hypertextual story of desire and loneliness that verges on the border of reality and hallucination. The sound reflects a convulsive beauty and the uncanniness of identities in the process of transformation. The liquid characters look upon their multiplied and ever-changing versions that flow into one another, giving way to endless hybrids of identity: (supra)mental, (supra)psychological, (supra)gender, (supra)racial and (supra)sexual. Their place is always set in the future, in dreams, in the pursuit of »there and then«. »Endless: The Living Set« was born during »The Parliament of Bodies / The Night of The Black Milk« curated by Paul B. Preciado in 2018 at the Warsaw’s Museum of Modern Art, as an idealistic escape from the prison of »here and now« and a statement of longing for a community that would exist in a classless, egalitarian limbo in the spirit of queer universalism, which calls for striking out the investment in treating difference as the basis of identity.
The music and storytelling piece is presented at Yvonne Lambert/Spike for the first time in Germany, on the occasion of the release of the vinyl LP Endless: Music for Performers (Bocian Records) and the artist’s book Endless | The Diary (Foksal Gallery, Warsaw).
