Artists: Petra Zanki and Tea Tupajić
Perforations Festival 2011
In order to reverse the perspective and put the focus on those who are always outside of it, Petra Zanki and Tea Tupajić started the specific project called simple The Curators’ Piece, to erode the matrix of mechanisms that function in the contemporary art scene. It is not that no one has before dealt with those who program, select, decide, judge and suggest, but no one before hoped for this kind of cooperation. In coordination with many European and worldwide cultural institutions, as well as the non-institutional scene, they gathered a series of curators, mainly in the field of performing arts, who agreed to be ‘on this side of the mirror’. Part of The Curators’ Piece is also the video The Game with Objects, a kind of psychological test and a simple game in which, imagining and presenting stories exercises fancy, rhetoric, accessibility, and the ordinariness of those who, sometimes, create the destiny of art.
An auteur duo on the border of the possible, performance artist and author Petra Zanki and film maker Tea Tupajić, are the perfect match for what they intend: to draw closer to those who have defined but also theoretically undefined power and attempt, not to strip them of it, but to tame them. In this project the joke becomes that truth and parody of art – art itself.
