Alagya Workshop / Aron Lodi & Szilvia Bolla


14. 09. 2022 16:00

Vstupné: dobrovolné
Entry: donation

The workshop aims to expand the world of Alagya through various collective exercises. As old narratives are becoming tangential and are inherently false, participants will engage in exchanges of knowledge, ideas, discussions, and practices revolving around the notions of body, identity, speculative fiction, and worlding. They are invited to create new assemblages of symbols, meanings, and images dealing with present and future socio-political and economic mechanisms. The participants will take part in a collective reading session and engage in creative writing exercises.

The workshop is limited. If you want to participate, here's the link to the registration form:

Alagya is the project of artist duo Szilvia Bolla and Áron Lődi. It aims to construct new possible forms of literacy to decode planetary life, and identity in the post-capitalocene through collaborative work and interplay between sculpture and text. By the cross-contamination of fact and fiction, it attempts to forge visionary pre-/reimaginations of technofossils as material traces of the capitalocene — the age when (pseudo-)commodity appears as a species that necrotizes the entire planet.

Technoculture becomes both its birth and burial in the shape of its own materiality.

However, instead of interpreting fossils as ghostly dead matter, the project examines them as dynamic entities through the scope of new materialist vitalism as a form of elegiac grief of the irreversible losses of our future past. They are material hybrids, body-machines that are inhabitants / refugees / natives / critters / creatures / survivors of the monstrous sublime and uncanny paradox haunting the plateaus of the post-capitalocene. They act as lively agents whether human/nonhuman, organic/inorganic, biotic/abiotic, visible/invisible. They recite poems in a language yet to be fully decrypted.
