Alex Baczynski-Jenkins (PL/UK)

Artist and choreographer Alex Baczynski-Jenkins engages with queer affect, embodiment and relationality.
Through gesture, collectivity, touch and sensuality, his practice unfolds structures and politics of desire.

Relationality is present in the dialogical ways in which the work is developed and performed as well as in the materials and interdependent poetics it invokes. This includes tracing relations between sensation and sociality, embodied expression and alienation, the textures of everyday experience, the utopian and latent queer archives. He approaches choreography as a way of reflecting on the matter of feeling, perception and collective emergence, while producing other ways of experiencing memory, time and change. He is co-founder of Kem, a Warsaw based queer feminist collective focused on choreography, performance and sound at the interface with social practice. Through various experimental formats and community building, Kem engages in critical intimacy and queer pleasure.
