‘ARTEMYS revival’

Mary Szydłowska & Anna Lugmeier

May 2023

During the residency at The Green Corridor,
Mary Szydłowska explores 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.

December 2023 

Artist / choreographer Mary Szydłowska and filmmaker / scenographer Anna Lugmeier would like to welcome you to the first Artemys revival - a salon connected to a screening of a work in progress they’re working on together.

Artemys aspires to become a continuous space for FLINTA* people activated by questions on the relationship between the experience of city spaces and femme/queer bodies. It is a warm salon that is held by conversations, sharing of experiences and unapologetic, slow hanging out together.

Thanks to the collaborative environment, Artemys revival extended beyond a film form, reaching out to a longing for a safe FLINTA* space for connection, conversation, film and body practices.

Mary Szydłowska is 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 Their practice feeds on the notions of the peripheral, withdrawn and invisible phenomena followed within architectural spaces and institutional environments.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.
