21er Haus - Eva Koťátková, Stomach of the world

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

15 November 2017 - 11 February 2018

For Eva Koťátková, the evolution of the self is a tightrope walk between internal and external pressures. Featuring a multitude of objects generating an expansive installation, her exhibition on the lower level of the #21erhaus revolves around the #film Stomach of the World (2017), which forms the fulcrum of this thought.

Stomach of the World has a running time of 46 minutes and is exhibited in a loop. In this surreal yet humorous #film, the world is experienced from the perspective of children performing a sequence of exercises. The young actors imagine the world as a body that ingests objects and subjects and transforms them.

Koťátková drafts the notion of a world as one big dump, where things are layering, rotting and infiltrating; a stomach filled with stomachs and with that which feeds and fills them; the stomach of the world, the machine inside the machine. The world like a snake that stockpiles in its belly: It’s all about the politics of eating or being eaten.
