‘Porous Whispers’ by Katarina Hruskova and Miroslava Vecerova at Obrońców Stalingradu 17
Whispering is a means of creating an intimate sharing environment. Bodies growing close, senses awakening, as we open ourselves to mystery. Miroslava Vecerova and Katarina Hruskova deliver their cues in whispers, creating a space for sharing of that which is unspoken and that which cannot be spoken at all. In this world, there is no us and them. There is nothing alien or external, the unity of diversity and equality reigns supreme. Seeing through the eyes of vital materialists, our world consists of a number of interactions between human and inhuman entities which are intertwined and contained within each other. In the words of Sagan and Margulis, “we [people] are walking, talking minerals”. This approach allows for a horizontal narration, which gives equal voice to all actors. It lets one tune in to the individual things, to try to empathize with them, which is further amplified by Porous Whispers´ use of a shared language. The poetic form of the artists’ works gives voice to both animate and inanimate matter which thus become not mere representants, but rather the actual driving forces of the action involved. Our bodies and capabilities no longer restrict us, the only measure of all things is our own imagination.
