PERFORMANCE: SERGEJ VUTUC

 ABOUT:  Performance COMPOSITION DEVICED IN MOTION, GIVEN deals with absorbing and linking multiple directions of magnetized information by forming a sound landscape. The performance is grained with visual take of reality by projection of a super 8 film in motion controlled by coincidence of paths and moment. The video is realized as spontaneous combination of moments inside a camera; it is an interaction of a trigger, motion, light and objects in between, and collection of fragments. It’s an endless rearrangement of reality, over and over, as necessary as a process itself, creating an ever-shifting landscape.     BIO:  Since the mid 1990s Vutuc has been engaged in the punk and skateboarding community and the aesthetics and philosophies of these DIY-cultures have granted his work a distinct character. Skateboarding is an undeniable part of all this, but the board here might better be understood as a vehicle, than a sporting tool or past time. Vutuc’s work reaffirms that the skateboarder is not a detached voyeur of urban modernity. He has to constantly engage with his environment, reinvent and make new use out of it. His gaze, like Vutuc’s, is a nomadic one. It is always searching for things that are usable, beautiful or just plain fun, things he can invest himself in. These fragments become the raw material for stories the „mouth can never say,“ stories privileged for the eye. (Galerie Michael Janssen)   www.sergejvutuc.com
