In this video, Wojciech’s subject is his teacher at the University of Arts in Poznan, Anna Tyczynska. She performs for him what he describes as an “erotic dance with a torch”. The situation plays with the familiar fantasy of a forbidden relationship between teacher and student, while retaining a mystery and anonymity that question the reality of the romance. The work also shows the degree of intimacy that Wojciech has with his subjects, and importance of his own presence and his relationship with the subject in the understanding of his work.
