Performative interventionShe Saw Him Stealing He Saw Her Burning (prolog)
Grażyna Roguski

Performer: Matilde Bassetti, Brenna O

Grażyna Roguski‘s performative intervention responds to Joan Jonas’ video performance He Saw Her Burning, which Jonas performed in 1982 as a fellow in the former AEG factory in Berlin’s Wedding district. Roguski takes the original script of Jonas’ performance and some of the formal aspects as a starting point to rearrange them in a tableau vivant. Like Jonas, whose residency in West Berlin was marked by an experience of isolation, Roguski is directly influenced by her spatial surroundings and everyday objects during one of her artist residencies. Roguski takes elements from Jonas’s video, such as masking and tracing and overlaying images, and interweaves them with her own photographic archive, the bodies of the performers, and the setting of an endless dress rehearsal.
