Performance is a part of work with the same title, featured at the exhibition First Place in the Table?
In “Score”, the artist uses the notion of a foul as a capacious metaphor for what is wrong, unfair, and violent in us and around us. In sports fouls can be intentional or accidental, and not always a yellow or red card are their ultimate consequences. In the further part of the work, however, the artist shows that the consequences of the current situation do not have to be unambiguous, and the result – the score – does not have to be certain. Failure can also be a value.
Iza Szostak has recently been creating works based on the analysis of virtual reality. She is interested in the subject of the virtual body in the context of choreography and dance, as well as new performative forms incorporating VR technologies. Computer-generated characters and space in the work Score may seem unreal and alien, but at the same time they are disturbingly real, as it is the digital image that is the superior message today.
The event is part of the program of the “midissage” of the exhibition First Place in the Table?
