Leon Pozniakow (b. 1982, Bath, UK) lives and works in London. He graduated with an MA from the Royal College of Art in 2020, having previously completed his BA at Falmouth College of Arts. Pozniakow’s practice responds to love’s innocence and the sanctity of sentimentality. He is interested in how the reification of experience through process and materiality can uncover the nuances and complexities of love. The objects he produces become reliquaries of gay experience and of queer love.
