Puer Deorum (they/them) is a multidisciplinary British born Bangladeshi artist, with a focus on performance and moving image which explore power dynamics through physical objects/actions, that tie into this idea metaphorically. These objects are usually derived from children's toys and games as a simplified symbol of the complexities of relationships. Their works often use visual tropes, reminiscent of  the symbology, colours and compositions of the romance of classical painting to 'play' with postcolonial notions and the lack of relevant representation of queer bodies of colour using film making as a form of creating almost literal moving images, with non linear and implied narratives.
