Irena Kukrić’s research centers around what we perceive as ‘present’, in a performance without human actors as intermediaries. As humans today so often relate to people who are not physically present and to media governed by code, how do we navigate (dis)embodied affects? Through the methodology of rehearsals and feedback loops, in an ongoing experimental situation, Kukrić looks closely into the automated movements she works with. These automated movements, through their repetitive and pre-programmed nature, are seen as disembodied gestures, reflecting on the affects that arise in the relationship between humans and technology.
