- MURMUR. ERNESTYNA ORLOWSKA
Opening: November 10, 2022, 6–9 pm
The exhibition in its entirety is a place for contemplation of the possibility of a post-anthropocentric worldview—where human and environment are one.
Performers, objects, human and nonhuman materials meet on the abstract level of chemical elements. What do we touch when we touch ourselves and each other? Do we touch subjects or the non-human material (water, carbon, gas) that we humans are made of?
The group of performers develops its own language and logic of encounter, which emerges from the costumes and objects. The performers are in a somatic state, sensing and sensual in their bodies. The exhibition is a place of contemplation, where our human existence can be experienced as a “living through of forces,” and where human and non-human actors meet and become one. These forces are a cosmic murmur, from whence the title for the exhibition comes. The performers are wearing altered active wear, aerodynamically designed clothing, in order to evoke an aura of vitality, energy and strength.
The gallery space will be filled with smoke and hot wind, which are choreographic elements like the bodies, and in fact, they are encounter each other on an equal level.
The performers have a set of scores that allow them to improvise with fixed elements, creating and dissolving dream-like associative images.
