Event/premiere in Punctum, Prague in January ///

Event/ three days long presentation in Horizont Gallery, Budapest ///

The multichannel video installation with narration and sound draws up a vacated scene where the
automatization, introspection, and catatonia together aim to demolish the self and the body.

To reduce it into a useful bio-mechanical system.

The inability to touch an only virtually existing personality – seems quite secure, isn’t it

Illuminating Nimova

Demolish Nimova

Demolish a persona

Meta-existence & self-destruction

This is not a question of authority but rather ontological (still) in the age of the internet. Tapping my own limits. A tight-rope dance. Radical body politics? In a case of using it as a person to be sacrificed or simply to play with – yes it is. A fictional character as a virtual alienation. Distinction from reality with the help of a computer-based, dark, unlimited (and definitely not white) cube called viewport – in a 3D graphics software. This viewport is somehow the opposite of the twentieth century’s symbolic gallery space. The existence of each object and material grows out of the cooperation between a software and the human.

Socially self-destructive individuals engage in an annoying or alienating behavior. OR it may also manifest itself in an active attempt to drive away other people.

A „metaphorical social suicide” from both ways: the first time by creating a fake self (Vera Nimova); second time by imprisoning it into virtual – or simply let it become fluid, then vapor, then aeriform. Let it go and let it sublimate.

Nedotýkejte se toho, prosím / Let’s entropy 2018 // Punctum, Prague, Czech Republic

…during the one-night projection an approximately 15 minute-long monologue was played: it was Zira’s voice from a speech generating software. The three parallel video projection – placed in an L form and “from time to time, from time to time” – slipped on each other and sometimes the colored, greenish acid light fulfilled the interior. All of the videos – from different point of view – represented a laboratory scene: one painted up a dreamy scene of a medical exanimation (green dental chair, table, a transparent patient, and cables); in another scene there was a sound field of a breathing machine-like image during labor – with its well-known whistling-sound. There was also a scene with a faceless, seemingly fragile, sculpture-like figure rolled into pink cables – typing constantly something in the air with a series of an abstract line set resembling a human vascular network fading in an out softly.

The text is based on a fictive, artificial personality (referring but not using AI) – we are not able to define what is the scene drawn up for exactly: is it a simple medical exanimation or (rather based on the suggestion of the text) it is a psychological exanimation.
According to her self-definition, she does not exist physically. She tries to explain this state of existence with citing quotes from Mark Fisher, from Wikipedia; by creating freepoem-like ego-descriptions and tries to account for that the act of giving up faith for the social pressure and the interpretation of depression and meaninglessness as a biochemical disorder why is a an important question for her, for whom who does not exist in a physical form.

She is frustrated by the fact that she is differing from a human, existing form and it makes her outsider.  As a sympthom, she tries to be as smart as possible.

With the topic of laboratory, exanimation, only virtual existence and machines it was a play and inquiry of the last years’ experiences: meeting and using 3D software, the dive into them, the escape into the usage of a pseudonym.  To defer to the norms there are thousands of ways – and always the actual system (or regime) dictates and decides – and draws up the demarcation fields to define whom will remain outside even if it is one’s own accord (like nimova projeckt as a refusal of something) or even if it is an extrinsic isolation or rather a quarantine.
