Domicz | Bettin

Jan Domicz in conversation with a Cologne-based writer and curator Miriam Bettin.


(Fragment of the conversation script as written by the artist):

In terms of talking points:
– maybe we can start with the Plotters show in Cologne, in general, descriptive, context driven
– relation between two video works from this show Plotters (Credits) and To my friends. Next room (Hotel Monterey)
both talk about readymade structures (of flats). how the function can be easily changed but structure becomes untouched || you can watch both here – first two works in this pdf.
– I can tell you about a new video I’m working on during residency in Chianti.
It is a remake (film-zombie) of Ryszard Waśko‘s short theory of space in moving image from 1974. Part of a group Warsztat Formy Filmowej.
– a pinch of unplanned detours
