Do you know anything that you canÔÇÖt place in a binary scheme of worth and worthlessness? Elli Kuru┼č has been struggling with the peculiar split that is the necessary precondition to capitalist value for a while now. Looking for its internalized, embodied effects Elli has been working on a series of ceramic sculptures. They are reminiscent of human bodies, but their shape points to an inexplicable, monstrous split. The exhibition at K├╝nstlerhaus Schaddelm├╝hle
presented the ceramics like archaeological finds of a lost culture. They could be discovered piece by piece via a wild meadow parcour.
As part of the exhibition, Asya Volodina has developed a larp (=live action role play, a kind of immersive performance). On three dates, interested people could participate. In the Larp, the sculptures acted as proxies that were activated by the participants. In the common play the ceramic bodies were touched, used and put in relation to their own body. The format of the (role) play allows emotional immersion into an alternative reality, which makes other rules, other forms of perception and cooperation possible. The participants are agents in a moment of co-creation and their traces of action became part of the exhibition.
