CORPUS / video installation
In the video installation consisting of ten video recordings, Goran Škofić treats his own body. Each video shows a multiplied figure of the author who, in repeating rhythm, performs just one action (workout in the gym, running, applauding in a concert hall…).
He deconstructs the body into a naked “corpus” as he titled his work, liberating it of humanization, of bodily weaknesses, like fatigue or mistake. Škofić’s character acts in the rhythm of incessantly repeating movements and has no foothold either in the original or in the truth.
