During the residency at The Green Corridor,
Mary Szydłowskaexplores the entanglements of affect,
erotics, identity & architecture.
‘When I first visited Galerie Bortier, I quickly realised
that the space was a huge tunel with nearly no fallic
elements in it. It was more than clear that Galerie
Bortier was an architectural vulva, and the touch was a
way to explore and be it.’
In collaboration with Anna Lugmeier, filmmaker
and scenographer, „ARTEMYS revival” grows through practices of walking together,
perceiving urban surroundings together and
activating possible femme narratives through
cinematographic tools and through bodies, human
and non-human ones.
‘ARTEMYS revival’ is a continuation of a
project WARM BODIES initiated by Alex Auris
and Queer Commons. Mary Szydłowska joined
WARM BODIES upon invitation in Spring 2022.
Mary Szydłowska with Anna Lugmeier
Mary Szydłowskais a choreographer, performer
and cinematographer. Their practice feeds on the
notions of the peripheral, withdrawn and invisible
phenomena followed within architectural spaces
and institutional environments. The performative
works created by Szydłowska expand into object and video installations, where performing
body renders visible the embodied aspects of
environments we live in.
