16:30 - Wojciech Kosma: Spalarnia
Ritual story telling
30 Jun 2019, 16:30
Močvara, Trnjanski nasip bb, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
Spalarnia performance blends poetry with minimalistic electronic soundtrack and live improvised music. Simple accounts of imaginary happenings that move promiscuously between frames of time and metonymy are told in a serene voice that adheres to the meditative rhythms of the sounds. The quasi-ritualistic qualities create a space for abstract storytelling about quasi-utopian communities and an idealised past.
Spalarnia is a sound and poetry alias of Wojciech Kosma, a performance artist known for staging nuanced representations of intimate relationships that weave together dance, theatre, and personal biographies. Wojciech performances were shown, among others, at Chisenhale Gallery, London; Transmission Gallery, Glasgow; Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge; Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw; Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin; Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Los Angeles; Interstate Projects, New York. He is a founding member of artist collective East London Cable, and a member of a free jazz duo Hope Scandal (together with the drummer Bobo).
