Re-S.A.L.E. (Sporty Animal-Loving Extrovert)


FR 23.3. und SA 24.3.2012

Re-S.A.L.E. is a piece about economy of human relations and politics of human interaction. The creator and performer deals with an idea of a body availability through a sexual image. The work stands on the process of self-objectification into an unspecific body object, what thus creates different attitudes of spectators in this process. He does not propose a concrete attitude, but rather raises a question what these attitudes could be.

“Am I admired, wanted, denied, am I disgusting or attractive? Will you buy me or not? Will you use me or not?”
“I am taking you to an inner place, where you do not want to see anything, but you will not be able not to look.”

Premiere: 2009, International festival Nultý bod in Prague (CZ); Studio Alta in Prague.
