Wioletta Kazimierska-Jerzyk: Thoughts on Trans-species Projects of Michał Brzeziński

Art, both today and in the past, has two major functions. it ought to influence people as well as pleasure them (even if it is solemn or sad). in present times however, artists need to balance the social and ludic aspects of art more accurate, since they compete with the internet. to win over audience ? it became a primary goal of an artist. that is why i found michał Brzeziński?s idea to hit with art as if with a virus particularly interesting. in the present article i discuss his concept of ?Virus video? and the idea of playing a virus on the field of art it led to. in addition, i expound its meta-artistic context which is based on a play with the notion of virus. although Brzeziński?s art is radically innovative, i identify its roots in avant-garde intellectual provocation.





Michał Brzeziński - transhumanistic, and biosemiotic artist working with fauna flora and micro world, searching for affective language and life origins in matter, using medical media as EEG, GSR, USG interested in transspecies affective communication and sexual interfaces. Combining software and video biology. Creator of Galeria NT (2010). His wide, theory based, artistic and curatorial activity had animated theoretical discourse touching experimental film and video art as independent a-historical and matter-oriented aesthetic area. Curator working with galleries such as the Museum of Art in Łódź, Center for Contemporary Art Łaźnia in Gdańsk.
