[0] ↔ AiS&SiA

  • 24 June 2017 From 2pm

2pm, free to attend, no booking required.

As part of his current residency at Gasworks, Aleš Čermák presents [0] ↔ AiS&SiA, a new work featuring performance, video and sound. Based around his recently published essay of the same name, [0] ↔ AiS&SiA considers the weaponization of commercially available drones by both the military and non-professionals, and how this affects our understanding of modern warfare.

Invisible movements → apparitions inserted into the myriads of industrial products → flowing one over the other. Magical captivity needs no weapons → it usurps → it binds, impeding each contest.

The twenty-first century is turning out to be a unique mixture of incompetence and brilliance → of state-of-the-art technology and primitivism → of softness and brutality. The twenty-first century is a landscape of swords and magic. The world has become coarse, ignorant, and at the same time wonderfully sophisticated → intelligent. All of this can coexist.
