On Saturday, 23 March, at 7 pm, the Museum of Modern Art in association with the Institute of Music and Dance present Ramona Nagabczyńska’s performance Accumulation© Trisha Brown, which premiered last year as part of the RE//MIX project run by komuna//warszawa. This time the show will be presented as part of the Institute of Music and Dance’s programme Stage for Dance.
Ramona Nagabczyńska about the show:
Knowledge is a product of accumulation of personal experiences and collective cultural history. Every show is a show of memory. The Latin word ‘inventario’ meant both invention and inventory – terms intuitively perceived as opposite by many, but inseparably linked to one another. Creation, cognition, reception, these all happen through the agency of accumulation. I am interested in the spectator’s changing perception in a historical context and in the artist’s changing attitude to the creative process, his art being set in a context defined by a given discipline’s output so far. Considering the availability of a great number of media and the tendency to continuously enlarge and improve, today, the concept of accumulation must evoke different associations than it did in 1970s when Trisha Brown created her first accumulation-based works. I would like to underscore this fact and confirm that past output is a bottomless source, not an inhibiting limitation. This show is going to be an accumulation of quotations.
