Johnny Forever Nawracaj
Johnny Forever Nawracaj is a Polish-born, genderqueer performance and installation artist currently based in Montreal. Their growing body of work weaves surrealist narrative through the use of song, fibres, video, gesture, illustration, and drag. They explore love, loss, and longing with a particular investment in these themes as a part of radical queer and trans cultural production. Forever’s performances have seen the cabaret stages, theatre spaces, and gallery floors in Montreal, Warsaw, Toronto, and Berlin. Notably, Forever has shown video work in Glasgow at both the Centre for Contemporary Arts and the Gallery of Modern Art; they have performed in Toronto’s XPACE Cultural Centre as part of the FADO emerging artist festival, Kuma Gallery in Berlin, as well as the 2012 Rhubarb Festival at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto.
