EMARE RESIDENCY 2021: UPDATE #4
The filming of the project has started, two more meetings ahead.
The project is moving forward! Last week, our resident artist Liliana Piskorska (Zeic) started shooting the video part for the “Gently running downwards” project.
Liliana Piskorska (Zeic) is part of the 2021 EMARE residency programme of the European Media Art Platform (EMAP) – a collaboration that brings together 11 European Media Art organizations, co-produced by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. The EMARE programme offers yearly residencies to artists working in the fields of digital media. Read more about EMARE here.
The installation that Liliana is working on will be an audiovisual piece that uses traditional kids games as a form of expression and reflection of the patriarchal structures and inequalities embedded in the “adult world.”
Just like the focus group of Liliana’s project, LGBTQ+ community, the film set locations are somehow transformed, and reorganized by humans and social structures. They don’t belong to the city spaces but exist on the margins of these structures.
We are excited to see Liliana grow and continue the project despite the unusual circumstances! Stay tuned for more updates on 2021 EMAP/EMARE and Liliana Piskorska (Zeic).
Liliana Piskorska― Artist
Visual artist, born in 1988, based in Wroclaw/Poland. In 2017 she finished her PhD at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Torun. She has taken part in over 90 individual and group exhibitions in Poland and abroad. She is finalist of Forecast Forum in Haus der Kulturen der Welt/Berlin in 2017 and Audience Award Winner: Views 2019: Deutsche Bank Award. In her artistic work, she analyses social issues from the perspective of radical sensitivity, rooted in the feminist-queer and feminist-posthumanist practice and theory. She focuses on dependencies between the state, the nation, Central European identity and the position of peripheral identities. She undertakes the subject of queer lesbianism and non-heteronormativity, considering their construction and potentiality and examines the place of the Other in constructing state projects. Some important elements of her practice include the questions of group identity, group memory, construction of the law, and the methods of building imagined communities.
