Natália Trejbalová – and then we cut the ground from under

opening 23/1/2020 7pm fb event

exhibition is open 24/1/2020 – 23/2/2020

In her project and then we cut the ground from under Natália Trejbalová draws upon her interest of a speculative fiction of the future and conspiratorial theories. A central piece in the gallery is a short introduction of her long-term work on gradually developing film. The 35m2 gallery becomes a laboratory of a certain spectator = viewer. We sense that the presence is not here and now but takes place in the nearby future, perhaps even with non-living and non-human actors transforming themselves into the artificial intelligence. In this case we return to a renewed idea that a surface of the planet Earth is flat thus not geoidal and elipsoidal.

Natália Trejbalová (* Košice 1989) lives and works in Milan and Bratislava. In her artistic practice she focuses on speculative fictions in forms of video, text, object or performance. And then we cut the ground from under is a first part of short film set to an alternative version of the planet Earth, which becomes flat in nearby future.
