Residency in Hvitsten Salong  

During the Hvitsten Salong 2023 Festival in August, David presented a work that directly relates to the anecdote/parable about the sword of Damocles. According to history, a sword suspended in the air on a thin horsehair was supposed to symbolize constant threat and remind us of the consequences of our decisions. 

”Growing up in an oppressive environment marked by the strong influence of the Catholic religion (traditional values etc.) as a gay person, I had to deal with rejection, violence and loneliness many times. The constant sense of threat because of my differences accompanies me to this day. The sword took on a slightly surreal, abstract form. Referring to the style of the world of fantasy, magic and unicorns. The sword is also a symbol of masculine, strength and hierarchy, in this view it seems to balance between what wants to remain invisible and what catches the eye.” – Dawid Puszyński
