MetaSaturday

Dorotka Kaczmarek i Kamil #2

07.05.2016 – 21.05.2016

Starting from completely disparate points, speaking different languages, exploring distinct spaces – we create corresponding worlds. Does that mean that we have something in common?

The question created MetaSaturday, an event-collision, an attempt at a confrontation with and a working-through of our attitudes.

DOROTKA:
“Kamil says he makes robot art. Kamil is a romantic and adores red roses.

His worlds are spaces of undulating anxiety. Containing multiplicity and promise.

(Of what?)

I imagine pixels whirling wildly, colliding, scrunch scrunch, the system is overheating and panting, combating the virus. And then it spits it out […]

Kamil betrays nothing or betrays it all. He pulsates silently like a dormant volcano, and when the time is ripe, he erupts. Meanings mount, grow, overload the image. Do they annihilate him or only foreshadow their own fall?”

KAMIL:

“Oohmmmm feel this. And now repeat after me: With my eyes shut. Speak up! One more time: With my eyes shut, I shall go and see the work of Dorotka Kaczmarek, Dorotka Kaczmarek [yes!]; and I shall ask viewers unaware of the actual method to describe her works with their very lips; and when the silence falls, I shall burst out laughing and cry out: Huh! you’re just as blind! And then, to drag me out of the present, I shall open my eyes and see the image of the future.”

GADAMER:

“…an actual conversation never follows the path we would like to steer it along. One should rather claim that we become embroiled, or even entangled in a conversation. … No-one knows in advance what will transpire in a conversation. Understanding or a lack thereof somehow befalls us.”
