A video performance whose main theme is the principle of denial. You hope that the things you see aren’t actually what you are seeing: phantom-like limbs, bats, or chives – it doesn’t really matter what you see, for it will always be something completely different. And if you think that you are in one place, you are almost certainly somewhere else. It looks like you are in the right place at the wrong time or at the right place but not at the right time or in a kind of out-of-place non-site-specific project. The video installation can be seen during regular opening hours, but during the evenings it is accompanied by live interventions created by second-year students of DAMU’s Directing of Devised and Object Theater program in collaboration with students from the Extended Media Development program at Prague College’s School of Art and Design.
Artists: Sarah Milner, Theresa Schrezenmeir, Lea Kukovičič, Israel López, Eva Burgerhoudt, Bria de la Mare, Zofia Komasa, Menzo Kircz, Lamija Čehajić, Isabela Juchniewicz, Arden Tan, Danica Rodis, Elizabet Sukhishvili, Maja Jurse, Sandra Habash, Jie Du, Tornike Mezvrishvili, Vadym Vovk, and Vanesa Vachová.
