‘Lingering Cut’ is a new body of work by Jaša: a complex multi-dimensional series encompassing moving-images, site-specific installations, light & sound performance & artist lecture. This Friday’s screening is the first chapter of this unfolding story, the full installation & performance will open on 15 Jan 2021 - SAVE THE DATE!
‘During the initial stages of the COVID 19 lockdown in May 2020, an older idea resurfaced as the challenges of thinking, planning or even producing collaborative non-studio artworks or projects of any kind became almost unsurpassable. An idea of a collective action turned into a situation of solitude and detachment, a reality that only needed to be documented and not staged. An older line came back chasing me: "A wish? A disaster."
Somewhere within the voids and cacophony of overlaying thoughts and needs of one, a persisting solitude takes vengeance on the outside world. An egoistic projection (resonating a string of dominant political ideas) brings the crumbling reality of solitude to everyone else too.’
Within the challenges of the ongoing overall situation due to the COVID 19 pandemic the project explores the bleakest pockets of one’s mind. The installation is another chapter, fragment or stage of the ongoing story of isolation and developing rage.’ [Jaša]
