Nina Dragičević, text, voice; Tomaž Grom, sound, music
Body as a vehicle of thought, including social class, ideological narratives, representational signals. Always targeted, under pressure. Everything pertains to it; everything bears upon it. It is not the last refuge of freedom, but a point the world infinitely cuts into, pelting it with massive amounts of words and violence, at times simply circumventing and thus annihilating it. Is the future possible?
Dragičević and Grom’s compositions derive from Nina’s book To telo, pokončno (2021), which deals with countless bodies, bodies finding their voice and being articulated in sound, that is, substantiated in space. A thought – critical, informed – starts to sound.
Nina Dragičević (1984) is a composer, sound artist, and a writer. She holds a PhD in Sociology. She is the author of four books: a novel Kdo ima druge skrbi (2014), and two essay monographs – Slavne neznane: Zvočne umetnice v konstrukciji družbe (2016, Eng.
