About

Our being in this world
is a public affair.

We live in relation.

Our bodies are open.

We touch.
We fight for each other.

This is not a fragile
formation!

We are true
dangerous bodies.

 
Dangerous Bodies narratives a multitude of characters from within a techno-humanity era. These disembodied entities are coming to terms with their own being. Kapusta’s protagonist(s) are one and are many, they are parts obscuring the centre, the partial body that speaks for a whole that cannot or does not want to be imagined as one. They speak simultaneously to the viewer, their language teetering between threat and caress, they address political and social urgencies that are distilled out of an observation of the contemporary social and political fabric. Kapusta’s protagonists ask how to imagine future societies, what tools or thought experiments we have left or have to invent to fully imagine an otherness.

Kapusta’s new publication titled Dangerous Bodies will be released in connection with the exhibition, bringing together her recent writing (designed by Sabo Day).
