The ludicrous and melancholic video Future Days combines elements of animation with images shot on the Swedish island of Gotland. The artist created a fictitious ‘afterworld for artists’ where artists from different generations meet after death. They include key figures from the twentieth-century art world (i.e. Lee Lozano, Charlotte Posenenske, Bas Jan Ader) and a number of forgotten Polish artists and theoreticians (Włodzimierz Borowski, Jerzy Ludwiński). The actors wear masks in the likeness of their characters; their dialogues are based on quotes by the figures they play. The encounter in the phantasmal landscape is followed by the discussions exploring the human desire for the sublime and the lack of art‘s influence on social matters.
