Unfolding through a two-channel video installation, Mouthless Part III (Panorama) brings the spell of Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė’s visual universe into the space. It is part of their research project Synthetic Landscapes and the third chapter of their Mouthless series.

  • OPENING in the presence of the artists:
    Thursday, February 2, 6pm
    February 3 to 26, 2023, Tuesday to Sunday, 11am to 6pm

For Mouthless Part III (Panorama), Gawęda and Kulbokaitė collaborated with engineers at the EPFL Center for Imaging and Image Analysis Hub and scientists to explore GAN aesthetics and environmental research. Technical and scientific inputs have been absorbed and integrated into the folkloric tropes of an opulent narrative and aesthetic that develops across two channels as a conversation between two characters: an archetypal Eastern European peasant and a landscape demon. Mouthless Part III (Panorama) is a delightful disruption of techno-science, where storytelling, science, advanced digital technologies, the character study, fashion, and a nuanced soundscape all converge, queering genres, haunting the context, and illuminating transtemporal links through a calibrated visual narrative.
