Kem invites Jaś Rabiej 

Alongside the exhibition guesting: Sound, Kem has invited Jaś Rabiej to collaborate on a musical composition referencing Guilty Landscapes by Dries Verhoeven. The artist turns the experience of looking and being visible into sound.

Jaś Rabiej is a sound artist born in 2000 in Elbląg, currently based in Berlin.

Kem is a feminist-queer group active in Warsaw since 2016, focused on new cultural-creative methods and strategies. The group creates and supports the context for critical dialogue around choreography and performance, experimenting with event formats such as workshops, residences, events, performances, demonstrations of works in process. Kem is a community formed in the process of cooperation and commitment around the politics of corporeality, affect and subjectivity in relation to collectivity.

The Approaches exhibition featuring: Sound focuses on contemporary works by Polish artists whose performative and para-performative activities represent the main area of interest in their arts practice (though they can be delivered in less than obvious ways).

The artists invited to take part have prepared new sound works, which thematically or formally refer to a chosen theatrical play: they represent an artistic answer, touching on similar questions or else offer up differing perspectives. These sorts of approaches allow a reading (listening) of individual pieces in the context of theatre or outside of it, as separate works. The body, superficially reduced to sound, becomes a starting point for all the projects.

Artists approach human beings in terms of dynamically occurring environmental, social or economic changes, as well as their consequences: the removal of governing structures or negotiations involving existing status-quos.
