INI Prostor, Prague, 2022

The multimedia installation 1,5m³ křehkosti | fragilities is based on research into the question: What changes when we experience distances - including the safety distance of 1.5m for protection against the Corona virus - and borders not as separating, linear, but as space, as a "container" in which "viruses, bacteria and ghosts" (Bayramoğlu, do Mar Castro Varela) circulate?
The installation 1,5m³ křehkosti | fragilities consists of two sculptural parts, video projections, text elements and sound. Based on phenomenological and imaginal research and practices with experts from different disciplines, the installation deals with different layers of presence in spaces. The sculptures are made using the materials wax and sugar, both chosen on the one hand because of their ordinariness and on the other hand because of their capacity to change their aggregate states and textures within seconds, thus embodying time as a kind of frozen circulation.
