Eva Koťátková - Stomach of the World

15.11.2017 - 18.02.2018

in short

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 21er Haus revolves around the film Stomach of the World (2017), which forms the fulcrum of this thought.

in detail

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 a stomach filled with stomachs and with what they engulf; the world like a snake in whose belly stockpiles another snake. It’s all about the politics of eating or being eaten.

Eva Koťátková was born in 1982 in Prague, where she still lives today.

Curated by Severin Dünser.
