(c) Nada Žgank

A mute comedy of the body that mocks the rigidity of social roles, human self-sufficiency, pretension. Performativity of the body in the gaps between silence and sound, shyness and excess, commonness and bizarre humour. Travesty of body and spirit as a sociopolitical liberation.

Technoburlesque is an intersection of (programme/cybernetic) code and subjectivity; a laying bare of the physical and emotional body indivisibly bound up with the information matrix of contemporaneity.

“I am riddled with ambivalence. I am both the rule and its exception, the law and its outcast, the doctor and the hysteric, I cannot be one without the other. I do not reject the images that consume me. I become them.” — Mady Schutzman
