No mental scars, no nursed grudges
no mental scars, no nursed grudges
3-channel video installation by Agnieszka Mastalerz
The title of the exhibition comes from Zygmunt Bauman’s From Pilgrim to Tourist – Or A Short History of Identity, from the passage The Player. The exhibition included a new series of analogue photographs (2021) and a 3-channel video installation (2022). It took place at eastcontemporary gallery in Milan, in January 2022.
The video work presents two young acrobats creating figures together — the older girl becomes a support for the younger.
There is also a pose performed individually, however on an object, which is the handstand canes.
The exercises are recorded with two cameras, one of which is fixed on a bolt. The robot analyses the movements in close-ups and slow motion, in order that all the gestures and strains are detectable. It is visible in the distance shots and becomes a character himself.
