Wormhole Stories #2: To Mean Time
performance by Maggessi/Morusiewicz
Winter Shorts, Bears in the Park, Vienna | 2022
With "To Mean Time," Maggessi/Morusiewicz present another snapshot from their ongoing practice that consists in employing, in performative and fictionalizing ways, concepts and practices from artistic research, queer theories, art history, film and cultural studies. The performance is an experiment in narrating temporal spaces of in-betweenness, ones that spread and linger so that they become affective and affectionate moments of duration trouble.
This multimedia performance is an episode in the series called “Wormhole Studies,” dedicated to extending the duo's visual-arts practice into performance.
