'Video Performance SS21' Art Performance, January 2021, Falcon, Moscow
A newly-repaired industrial robotic arm is mimicking the performer's actions during the presentation. The result is unexpectedly intimate, suggesting the strange ways in which a year of isolation has pushed us to access life’s pleasures through technology, rather than in the physical world. This performance is about a connection between sensuality and technology and how that affects the human body. Exploring different aspects of intimacy and distance between an artificial object “robot” and three performers Rima, Evgeny and Regina.
