Unhere (2020)

On February 4 at Strata Gallery Bucharest, at the closing of Scratching the Surface exhibition. 

In Unhere, performers activate states and affects corresponding to other realities than the situations in which they are (of visitors, clients, tourists, spectators…). Altering or cutting implicit adaptations, deviating from basic adjustments, they seem out of touch with reality, out of place, unhere. Because at some level we emulate the bodies that we encounter, Unhere can be contagious, affecting the social atmosphere. Space being modulated by the bodies' affects, perspectives and behaviors, Unhere can open its reality to liminality, potentiality. In general we conform to environments, we want to be adjusted to here and now, to behave adequately, even in art, and usually that's fine. But sometimes is good to undo the automated submissions, to open up or transcend situations, to go Unhere.

In some venues Unhere can appear uninvited at some venues – Unofficial Unworks.

Artworks are usually visual, sound or conceptual, Unhere is affect based.
