Proposal for placement. Two curtains.

Andrey Bogush

two domains: of capacity and opacity. depth and groundlessness. grounding onto the surface. deepening into the axis of traveling and shifting along the surface. domain of placing the incapacity, not visibility and impotence, procrastination and intolerance. domains of disengagement and dysfunctional functions of the surface and creative acts on such surfaces. where the placement is happening if not on the colonized profitable lands of those others. where the placement could happen other than in fiction and through fiction.

 to install is to place to place is to install agency to install in agency to place is to place into place so into or onto agency from agency thats a trick of agency and nothing here belongs to us. to install is to occupy to place is to resist to install is to fit and stretch to conform and to place. to place the body. the body language trajectory of placement. to speak is from some agency to another agency to speak is to install the agency to install the agency that is to speak. whose speech is taken for it whose space is taken for it. to place is always to misplace to mislead to colonize to install to be colonized to colonize is to be colonized. under the will of devices and under the will of chances and laziness.

 i want to become a part of that interface and see: okay maybe that is how it will go. or to see: what is a struggle here if it does not work. to exercise disobedience and anxiety of the other. is it that every place has that anxiety of the other. like nothing here belongs to us. like to stretch or to confirm. how to be a part and incorporate that into my practice-daily routines. i wonder what is fiction and if my works are fictions. i wonder about the concept of placement and displacement. i wonder about traveling and being in one place. i wonder about working and not working. i wonder about failing and the default states of things: generic things, things that dont belong to me. i wonder what my body is capable of and if my body is not mine as such.
