"Performance is a contact with public...

       ... it is a self-immersive presence..."

 

2022

There was light

Performance, January 2022,

Aude Guillet´s exhibition Lumen. Svitlo Gallery. Lviv, Ukraine.

Sand, matches, light, voice, 3 shells, memories, thread, steps, key, drawing.

Light accompanies the presence. It lasts like a voice as long as there is breathing. We move and create. Each one looks for his own key while being alive. But only the Saints have all the keys. And we can only remember those who are not here. We can only remember the shells from the sea from our childhood.

Dedicated to my husband, Petro.

Only saints have all the keys. Terra Mater

Performance, November 2021,

Magic Carpets Landed. Kaunas, Lithuania.

Chair, women that work in the Kaunas Picture Gallery, sand, circle, key, talk.

The staff of Kaunas Picture Gallery are women. Some of them have been working there for about twenty years. They know all the corners of the building and its history, and they create its contemporary stories. These women are the soul of this place. But they are mostly invisible people. 

We often lose a person's authenticity and truthfulness through the routine. What about talking to the person and about her?

Svévolnosti

Performance, September 2021,

FNAF. Altenburg 1964, Prague, the Czech Republic.

Dress, black pants, swimsuit, rope, vertical, diagonal, circle, stairs, up and down, storytelling, bucket, water from the river Vltava, cargo ship.

The event takes place on an old cargo ship that is in the water, but it is no longer sailing. "Altenburg 1964" is a place for memories. The river makes the time more visible. This performance is about truthfulness and sincerity as a kind of nakedness. It is a story about my grandmother, who could not swim, never wear pants, and considered many things lewd.

Presence

Performance, July 2021,

Letino Festival. Letino, Italy. 

Stones, sound, rhythm, eyes, sculptures, people.

The collected local stones retain the history of this place. It is a building material, and it is a piece of nature. These are rough sculptures that tell us about Letino and its inhabitants.

 

The point

Performance, streaming, June 2021,

Performance art festival in Tychy. Poland / Corviale, Rome, Italy.

The performance consisted of 2 parts: some people were sitting in front of the screen in Tychy and others were running around observing the real-life of Corviale. While streaming, Piotr Kumor was following the steps of movement in Corviale (A1, black bishop. A8, white rook. B2, w. pawn, etc.) putting the chess figures on the real chessboard that was situated in front of the public in Tychy. "A big grey point is visible from the distance. We need to go closer, to go inside... Corviale is usually conceived as horror but there is so much truth, love and hospitality in this district, building, point. It is a mirror hidden in concrete that reflects the true story of Rome, Italy, Europe... The final point of this chess game is "pat". But I don't put the king on H8.  Corviale is not dead, it is full of tension, movement and changes, full of life. The actual point of Corviale has at least 360° to look around."
