Filmoteka Muzeum

Wyrzykowski carried out the performance in the studio of the local TV station in Wrocław during the festival WRO “Polish Monitor.” The artist recorded the image of his body from the TV screen in the studio. Then, he took the tape from the cassette, wrapped it around his body and made cuts in the tape, while cutting himself at the same time.

Subject to damage was not only the artist's body and the tape, but also the video record. As a result, the image on the screen became distorted. Wyrzykowski's gesture marked an encounter between the sphere of the abstract and the bodily.
