behind the foreign
Both installations from the exhibition “behind the foreign“
in Warsaw are working with a splitting of the room.
Where is the limit of JAK ?
A flat light screen, made by a projector, separates the room at a height of 1.55 meters
– the fiction of a fear level from JAK.
2 actors are reading in Polish from the novel „JAK“, one above and one below the light area.
They are reflecting a situation in which it’s not possible to connect both levels.
A drawing in the room which seem very chaotic is the basis of the second room.
Shadows are moving through, because of a swinging light.
The figure looks like a biological structure, like a synapse
– it solidifies itself in the middle and creates a quiet patio there.
The two situations are very different.
Inside, the color is pink, the situation is quiet and there is a projection of a teddy bear –
outside is chaos and the light switches on and off just for short moments and in irregular sequences.
