Artist statement

The exhibition will feature a new group of works on paper, collages and an artist book. For the title of the exhibition I have chosen “The Body Score”, for two reasons. First, all the works on the exhibition relate to the human body as a sound device or the sound itself. Secondly, all the works on the exhibition are in fact scores, and there is a performative quality embedded in each.

Nature of the exhibition space, which is sort of a cabinet, gave me an idea to make an exhibition that will only be with scores or that the entire exhibition would be a single score, composed out of different collage works, some of them in group, some seemingly unrelated.

This is also something I never did, to just exhibite my scores, and considering “scoring” is an important part of my practice, the idea to inhabit a cabinet like exhibition space with scores seems just right. Another prominent feature of the cabinet-like space is for sure the lack of distance between a viewer and the work, providing a right kind of focus to my scores.

Material I have chosen to work with comes from the unused filmed material from my last production. I did so, because filming last film piled an enormous amount of material I still need to process.
