Iga Świeściak (1993, Poland) are* a performance/installation artist based in Berlin, who stage anti-linear, iconoclastic collages made of meticulously layered up errors and confused erotics. In various states of fuzziness, their practice is invariably grounded in body movement. Often involving the use of new media, mocking hi-tech sentiments and digital devices’ sex appeal, they try to distort the politics of representation and authenticity production.
Explicit about its incompleteness, their work is built from modules itching for constant rearrangement that compile into spatial sketches, rehearsals, and prototypes.
As they spill into one another, they fetch and exchange their own components.
