Michał Korchowiec - visual artist and set designer - has been working in his workspace on a series of projects, including an original form of footage shot with a smartphone at close-up range, edited in a way unique to this artist. Korchowiec is interested in the very fact of setting up a symbolic workspace in STUDIO teatrgaleria, as the subject of a range of performative actions, which include:
-planting a tree on the roof of the Warsaw building where the artist lives;
-reading Propaganda by E. Bernays, a book about manipulation and herd management, in which knowledge about human beings developed by Freud is turned against the interests of minority groups;
-editing together a documentary film about invisible rule from materials he has gathered during his journeys around the world and various spheres of exclusion. Fragments of this film will be screened in studio_online.
“Today, I am opening up my workspace, totally thrilled about this. I planted a tree yesterday, maybe tomorrow we can plant a forest...”
