Untitled 2010 (I woke up)

2010, HD video projection, 3:20 min, sound, 2010

"Untitled 2010 (I woke up)" is an inner monologue of the artist spoken directly to a camera, while performing movement sequences used in bodybuilding competitions. The narrative part of the work is framed with studied controlled movements of a body degraded to purely aesthetic and functional purposes. The gap between these two becomes apparent not only on the visual but also on the textual level – literary study of one's biological existence is contrasted with an actual demonstration of artist's physique.
