Johnny Forever Nawracaj is a nonbinary Polish-­born scholar, performer and multidisciplinary artist. Their practice weaves surrealist narrative through installation, video, gesture and drag-inflected performance to explore love, loss, and labour with a particular investment in these themes as a part of queer/nonbinary cultural production. Forever’s most recent work removes construction materials from their original purpose and function, combining them with queer femme tropes to form fantastical new configurations and build metaphors around the vulnerability of structures both physical and theoretical. This investment in ubiquitous construction materials like roofing and drywall arrives after several years spent working renovation jobs in Montreal and comes with questions around economic and environmental precarity.
