Research residency

Inspired by the quote of H.Bergson: “Since our body is not a mathematical point but always a duration”, Kinga’s searches for continuity of her own body and for ways to approach it as a duration. By focusing on its physical weight she explores different ways of grounding. Through this research Kinga wonders if by allowing gravity to (re)enter her body, she could resist the speed of the progressive time and allow the ‘non-event’ time to come up to the surface. 

The main question behind Jaczewska’s current research is a question posed by a philosopher Byung Chul – Han: “What will the pace of the future be? (…) Will the human being, after a short period of whizzing, return to the earth as walker?“
