utopia of extended here and now – an online environment performance | 11/01/2021
utopia of extended here and now – an online environment performance happened on the 10th of january, 2021.
utopia of extended here and now – an online environment performance is at the same time a reprise of a live performance from last June, an attempt of it’s translation into online space, as well as a practice of collective act in the unknown, uncontrollable and ambiguous space that the moment of now is.
This 11-hour event is a performance of an online, digital and physical environment. Performance is inside of, against, with the, beyond space and time of digital and online.You are invited to come in and out, watch, listen, spend time along, talk, observe and play in this 11-hour time interval in the spatial dis-continuity of online and physical spaces/places.
The access to the performance is free, though we ask you to consider donating (again) to Solidarna Foundation for the earthquake in Croatia relief. It started snowing, and the action of buying and delivering boots and underwear to the area is in progress.

Utopia of Extended Here and Now is made by a practice of collective experience – through the polyvalence of its definition as an object of art or as a category of the social. This gesture of liveness and collectivity is a utopian attempt, but also an immediate act – a disruption in the political space of digital and online presence and its normative economy of attention.A way to think authorship – in which the space of the performance (now digital and online) emerges as an environment that we as entities establish through our inter-existence.
This performance is a part of Antisezona 20 online+live programming in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb. Program of Antisezona is financed by the Ministry of Culture and the City of Zagreb.

utopija produženog ovdje i sada | 21/06/2020
participated in a 11 hour multimedia event, and a prior research led by performer, pedagogue and choreographer sonja pregrad. text in croatian only:
u ovom specifičnom vremenu, sa sviješću o krhkosti tjelesnog zajedništva, pregovarajući odgovornosti za svačiju sigurnost ali i potrebu za mjestom zajedništva, odlučili smo se izvesti ovaj rad, sa idejom da je, upravo sada, nužno postavljati socijalne i umjetničke poligone na kojima razvijamo osjetljivost.
zato vas pozivamo da dođete na utopiju produženog ovdje i sada, 20.6. u pogon jedinstvo od 20 uvečer do 7 ujutro idućeg dana. događanje će biti provedeno u skladu sa naputcima jzhz, a vi ste slobodni doći i otići kada želite, ponijeti svoju dekicu, čašu ili sendvič (mjesta za odmor, hrana i piće, kao i dezinfekcijski materijal biti će na raspolaganju).
utopija produženog ovdje isada je 11-satni događaj zamišljen kao koreografija okoliša. publika je pozvana ući, izaći, gledati i slušati, boraviti, jesti i odmarati unutar ovog cjelonoćnog događanja.
utopija produženog ovdje i sada nastaje iskustvom kolektivnog – kroz ambivalentnost njegove definicije kao objekta umjetnosti ili kategorije društvenog. autorica projekta, plesna umjetnica sonja pregrad kreće iz medija plesne izvedbe, ali s namjerom da okoliš, odnosno njegovi dijelovi, bivaju mišljeni drukčije, kao instalacija, koncert, film, performans, esej… te ga se želi ostaviti otvorenim za doživljaj svakog posjetioca.
na temelju svog višegodišnjeg koreografskog interesa, autorica koncepta pozvala je devetero umjetnica i umjetnika u šestomjesečno istraživanje, koje je uključivalo i dvomjesečni period fizičke odsječenosti usred epidemiološke krize, te ih pitala kako bi, iz svojih umjetničkih medija i autorskih poetika i politika definirali svoj objekt produženih ovdje i sada.
objekti su mišljeni kao porozni i živi entiteti koji pristižu u ‘sada i ovdje’ sa svojim povijestima i politikama orijentacije. time da, s jedne strane, oni svi zajedno nisu instrumentalizirani jednom autorskom vizijom, a da s druge nisu skup autonomnih radova, već voljno u dodiru i svjesno, sa svojim različitim strategijama, razvijaju međuprostore i međuodnose, oni aktiviraju okoliš kao koreografiju.
produžujući vrijeme trajanja na 11 sati, te proširujući prostor, mimo samo izvedbenog ili vizualnog, na prostore svih prisutnih tijela i predmeta, te unutarnje i vanjske prostore pogona jedinstvo, puštamo izvedbi okoliša da preuzme oblikovanje vremena i prostora ove proširene koreografije.

exhibited the audiovisual installation titled panacea /( pjesme i napitak — panacea /( songs and potion. the installation was produced in collaboration with luana lojić, and with the help by kora dvorski, a biologist.
scroll further down for concept description.
the audiovisual installation panacea /( songs and potion was realized as a result of contaminated soil and water research. panacea, the universal cure, is recognized in the process of bioremediation – a method used to ”cure” contaminated media (soil, water, subsurface material) by altering environmental conditions to stimulate growth of microorganisms and degrade the target pollutants. we collected materials for this work through a process of lab and field work and by talking to bioremediation experts. videos of the locations and various bio media (active sludge) were made. we used microscopes to record microorganisms that help decompose wastewater. the work was inspired by the movements of these microorganisms and their choreographies. we where fascinated by the poetics of nonhuman actors.
we visited zagreb wastewater treatment plant, oil rigs close to zagreb, and interviewed professors from faculty of science, university of zagreb and rochester institute of technology, zagreb. especially interesting was talking to prof. staša puškarić about human waste composting and using sustainable methods to treat wastewaters. you can watch a ted talk by him on this link. also, he appeared in the documentary ice on fire (2019) – link.

a short description of the performance (in coratian):
“Performans/izvedba se bavi pitanjem odustva i osjećajem koji prati isto. Na ova pitanja odgovaram indirektno koristeći pronađeni, sada ‘arhivski’, materijal – mikrokazetu sa sadržajem telefonske sekretarice meni potpuno nepoznate osobe. Izvođač ovog performansa nisam ja, već akademski iglazbenik Branimir Norac koji je jedini i prisutan pred publikom. On pušta mikrokazetu sa snimkama glasova nepoznatih ljudi – njih istovremeno odustnih/prisutnih, a istovremeno se pitamo kome su ti glasovi upućeni. Govori su svakodnevni, banalni i ne nose neko značenje, već im značenje daje glazbenik – dodaje emocionalnu vrijednost ovom artefatku nekog minulog vremena / odnosa.”
