(English) All the Things Which Are Not Here

(English) A performance and exhibition by Irina Gheorghe

(English) 4 Oct – 3 Nov 2019

 

Of the things which are not here, and are not,
we have, over here,
things which are not here, which have been,
and, over here, we have
things which are not here, which have not been.

 

Всички неща, които не са тук, проект на румънската артистка Ирина Георге, изследва различни техники как да подходим към неща, които не са в пространството на Swimming Pool. Ако за нещата, които са тук, разполагаме с набор от практики, то това не може да се твърди за неща, които не са тук. Ние можем да измерим пространството между нещата, които са тук, но как можем да измерим разстоянието до нещо, които не е тук? Как, освен това, можем да измерим разстоянието между неща, които са тук, и неща, което не са тук? И как можем да общуваме с това, което не е тук?

 

Всички неща, които не са тук преплита пърформанс, инсталация и фотография и е продължение на дългогодишното изследване на тези въпроси. На откриването, Георге ще представи Preliminary Remarks on the Study of What Is Not There (2017 -) – пърформанс, който се развива като guided tour около всички онези неща, които не присъстват в пространството: неща, които са и неща, които не са; неща, които биха могли да бъдат и неща, които не могат да бъдат. Той е и въображаема карта на предишните локации на пърформанса, почти неуловими в присъствието си тук.

 

Целта обаче не е нещата, които ги няма, да се появят; ако това се случи, те вече не са неща, които ги няма, те са станали неща, които са тук, така че нашето начинание се е провалило. Това  се отнася не само за пърформанса, но и за инсталацията, движеща се по повърхността на галерията. Тя картографира по-ранни пърформанси, но по различен начин – чрез стенни рисунки от тиксо ленти Георге схематично наслоява фрагменти  от предишни представяния. Първичните цветови кодове и различните степени на смесване съответстват на една постепенна категоризация на сферата на ненаблюдаемото. Разпръснатите форми създават една разединена темпоралност; сега-то на настоящето се изкривява от другите му сега.

 

Mиналото се завръща още веднъж през серия фотографии, Methods for the Study of What Is Not There (2018), представящи артистката в стилизирани жестове. Когато събитието отмине, то вече не е достъпно в първоначалния си вид; по същия начин реалностите, които не присъстват, не могат да бъдат представени без промяна в тяхната същност. Средствата за измерване, класифициране и разграничаване, които са присъщи на научния метод, сега биват наложени върху отсъстващото. Така те се превръщат в елементи в един прекъснат процес, който не може да претендира да бъде по-обоснован относно онези реалности, които не могат да бъдат директно наблюдавани. Снимките превеждат систематичността на тиксо картографията в серийността на фотографията, увеличавайки контраста между строгостта на едно изследване и недосегаемия му обект.

 

Влизайки в сградата, виждаме MA-TE-MA (2019): изображения, базирани на детска игра, която превръща геометрични фигури във физически обекти, които могат да бъдат манипулирани. Работата повдига въпроса как да взаимодействаме физически с пространството на ума, като непряко ни сблъсква с несъвместимостта между наука и поетика. Тя ни отнася и към основната проблематика в творчеството на Георге: идеята за ненаблюдаемата реалност както в научния, така и във философския реализъм. От неоткриваеми субатомни частици до хипотетични космически същества като извънземни или Деветата планета, настоящите обекти на научното изследване оспорват емпиричните основи на естествените науки от началото на модерната епоха. Защото при нещата, които не са тук, срещата между концептуалното и физическото е диктувана не толкова от яснота,  колкото от прекъсване и противоречие.
