ALEXANDRA PIRICI
"Encyclopedia of Relations" 

within the 59th edition of the Venice Biennale, The Milk of Dreams

" Encyclopedia of Relations (2022 – ongoing) both pays an homage to and challenges the concept of “encyclopedia”: on one hand, encyclopedias (especially modern encyclopedias) are forms of ordering and organizing knowledge systematically, by separate disciplines, attempting to summarize and place material realities into rather fixed taxonomic schemes; on the other hand, relations are fluid, made and remade, ongoing; they always link apparently distinct life-forms or elements revealing them as a constant flow of inseparable coexistences. 

The ongoing action is hinged on embodiments of collective relations as seen in biology and botany, as well as those negotiated in more abstract interactions – between musical tones, humans and technology, rocks and waves, plants and animals, and more. Taking inspiration from symbiotic living arrangements and other forms of reciprocal action, performers combine a set of elements – open to future additions – into larger, reconfigurable structures. 
Reminiscent of a Surrealist “exquisite corpse” game, through the body, the natural world merges with that of the fantastic.”

Artistic work around the text "CO²mming - Wie ich mit Pornos lernte zu heilen" from Lynn Takeo Musiol & Eva Tepest

Concept, video and performance

Performance part of the Auktakt Festival für szenische Texte 2020 Online INFOS

Artists Statement:
In response to the text "Co2mming - wie ich mit Pornos lernte zu heilen" by Lynn Takeo Musiol and Eva Tepest, for this one-night festival we produced the web presence of a fictional association, the "Happy Porn Association", via Instagram and our own website. On the latter a four-channel video work was streamed, with a live chat running alongside, in which audience members could interact anonymously. This presentation was followed by a staged artists talk on Zoom, hosted and moderated by the Auftakt Festival.
The video offered a framework to explore the dense material and expansive world created by the authors, presenting four different spaces, times, and readings of the text in turns. The video and surrounding structure was a time-based 'happening', to be shown only once during the festival programm.
Due to this, it is not possible to recreate the full experience, which is why we have decided to put only a screenshot and this statement online for documentation.

We we are very sad and extremely angered concerning the racist and sexist online trolling in the chatroom that was a part of the website concept. These were third parties, not connected to us or anyone involved in the production. The switch from stage-based arts to online-content due to COVID-19 was a learning experience especially in regard of online audience types. We apologize for our limited preparation on this fragment of the website and not instantly reacting and calling it out on the spot. We strongly condemn their disgusting behavior!

Separate from this incident we are very proud of our work, say thanks to the authors and are especially thankful to Auftakt-Festival for this otherwise amazing experience and opportunity!
