Let's Talk About Tomorrow28th June - 1st July
Private view: Thursday 28 June, 5-9pm
Panicattack Duo’s Panic Bugsperformance, 5pm
Liselotte Klint’s Square Studiesperformance, 7pm
curated by Oana Damir
What do we have in common? With each other, with our past selves, but most importantly, what will connect us with future generations? In this day and age full of political turmoil and ecological uncertainty, is it worth brooding over what it means to rely-on
and to lend a hand to some body? Formalized by Donna Haraway, the concept of symbiosis in itself defines no entity as self-standing, we are all complementary to an other being. Though it is unclear which is the top symbiont, and which is the parasite,
humans and the microbiomes inhabit the same space, and have to learn to share. This co-dependent reliance, found all around us, and deeply rooted in our own species’ evolution, is defined as solidarity. “The word describes a state of physical and political
organization, and it describes a feeling.” (Morton, 2017)
Let’s Talk About Tomorrowbrings together works by contemporary artists Beatriz Creel, Liselotte Klint and Panicattack Duo collective. Hosted at No Formatgallery in South East London, the show unravels in a visual installation
of Beatriz’s The Land That Does Not Yet Exist, with her The New Humanityvideo (2017) as a dystopian manifesto addressed to the ‘new humanity’.
Liselotte Klint’s Square Studiesperformance (2018) maps out a micro-cosmos of interrelations and internal collisions. The performers are given a set of parameters: a physical space, time, psycho-social behavioural parameters and a reflexive disruptive
element. Armed, they interact with each other and themselves, evolving into abstracted metaphors, zooming into personal dialogues, and zooming out into a mini-society of molecules, behaving as a dysfunctional hive.
Panic bugsis Panicattack Duo’s new performance and sound work (2018), which takes the form of a contemporary reimagining of Franz Kafka’s short story Metamorphosis.
“Solidarity restarts temporality. Solidarity means being freed from one’s being caught in the past and to have entered a vibrant nowness in which the future opens.” (Morton, 2017)
