Exactly on the 50th anniversary of historical show TV as a Creative Medium, Grzegorz Stefanski creates an installation for two TVs which critically amends famous film of Godard. He erases protagonists of the films chosen scene, leaving behind only echo of their voices, mute landscape and architecture. This gesture is a double reduction of “Contempt”, both film by Jean-Luc Godard and Alberto Moravia’s novel. Stefanski manipulates this cinematic archive in the gesture of opposition against patriarchal relationships it reproduces. (Barbara Piwowarska)
