If the conditions were auspicious, instead of writing this text I would be scratching the words out with an earring upon a Mexican cactus, preferably while one-handed driving a rented or, better still, a stolen car. Karolina Kubik, who examining the axis between the human body and geopolitics, will run situation-specific worskhops (13.06) and perform situation (14.06) entitled:
REPETITION – preferably call it a rove rather than a journey.
Because crucial element of her performance lies in time and embarrassing situations, she will try to impose a structure upon attractiveness of norms and experiences. Participants are invited to join a performative walk where we will focus on repetiton as a concept.
Performance art is not possible without the process of researching, developing, trying out and experimenting. The context and environment in which we are living creates us a background, that is why we will focus on the individuality to create a specific surrounding.
Information for all participants: A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
Karolina Kubik (born in 1984) is a Polish visual performance artist and poet. She performs in between definitions, creating installations, video-art, drawings and workshops. In her art she concentrates on the changing subjectivity of the spectator and the artist, when the latter unnoticeably becomes a spectator of the spectator. The ever present use of history, both in individual and collective experience, tries to connect dialog forms with the inexpressible; democratising the practice of art.
