Simulacra Studies WW
Solomiya Moroz - 2017

In Simulacra Studies, I’m exploring the drama of a missing piano interface while embodying physically the act of playing without the instrument itself. The piece is concerned with gesturality as a result of the instrumental behaviour where the personal qualities are juxtaposed with the embodied capabilities of the performer. The projected video in this piece magnifies the gestural behaviour with mediatised video experiences of the pianist as a person playing with images of himself on himself as one does with gender, sexuality, power, fragility, superficiality, banality, etc.
