As part of the second part of the WRO Résumé exhibition, we would like to invite you to the 7th edition of the “Key to Performance” project of the Paraperformance collective by Dominika Katarzyna Borkowska and Kamila Elżbieta Wolszczak. The duo’s current activities have been held in different cultural institutions and spaces; this time their action is perfectly matched to the motto of the 2017 WRO Biennial, i.e. DRAFT SYSTEMS.
During the SYSTEMATICITY action, there will be a “fusion” inside of the gallery. The Paraperformance collective understands it as exchange and improvisation, and the action will be an opportunity for the participants to explore and apply these terms. During the action, the viewers will be invited to co-create and look into the matter within a specific space. Making the viewers active and part of the performance is a well-known strategy of the Paraperformance collective.
The action will begin with the instruction given by IVONA, one of the most popular speech synthesizers. It is important that you wear a comfortable outfit that will not restrain your movements, and your willingness to act.
The ”Key to Performance” is an open platform for those who do not make art on a daily basis and want to learn creative approaches, and get rid of stereotypes about art. The Paraperformance collective is for new forms of live actions and works with the public to raise the awareness of live art and different languages of expression.
Participants: people over 16. You need to bring your own sleeping foam pad and white T-shirt
Participation in the workshop is free, but the number of places is limited. If you want to sign up, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (in the e-mail title, please, write SYSTEMATICITY, and in the body e-mail – your name, surname, age and phone number) .
Paraperformance is a collective of two artists – Dominika Katarzyna Borkowska and Kamila Elżbieta Wolszczak. They met in July 2014 on a BlaBlaCar journey (Polish carpooling service). This unexpected trip was the beginning of both professional relationship and close friendship. Dominika’s experience is rooted in theatre and choreography, while Kamila focusses on visual arts. Since 2016, they have been performing together as the Paraperformance collective. The focal point of their work is interaction with site-specific places and objects.
