Virtual Memory (2009)

Michał Brzeziński: ?Pamięć wirtualna?


Video “Virtual Memory” confronts the experience of family and historical memory with the world of modern media, which become not only a metaphor, but an extension of the nervous system. It’s kind of
psychoanalyst’s couch, which is shrouded in mists disintegrating story.
Narratives, which are woven foundations of our identity, a kind of software are imposed on us in an arbitrary manner by the social context and its historical legitimacy. Software implanted in us by family history, sets the boundaries of the world, with whom we have to face. Background art involves the recovery of freedom / … /
Narrative nature of this work is somewhat related to the aesthetics of the film document, and archive home movies, but the same picture resembles a corrupted interface 8-bit games. The operator is freed from the inheritance. The system is anarchy – a dangerous utopian dream for society and for artists.




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.
