Eene.meene

For the fifth time now Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź has undertaken the cooperation with the Strzemiński Academy of Art, creating the opportunity for the students to work together with artists and curators as part of an artistic and educational project. This year’s edition hosts Igor Krenz as the students’ mentor, whose experimental film practice became a starting point for young artists to respond to the restrictions induced by the coronavirus pandemic. The result of this creative experience, which also explores some of the digital limitations of modern technologies, is an interactive website that invites recipients to act.

The idea of the workshop was to prepare a joint exhibition project. The original project, however, had to be reviewed due to the pandemic. That is why the project supervisors and its participants reached out to Łódź neo-avant-garde traditions and the idea of a ‘composite’ film as an alternative form of presenting a work of a group of artists. The content of the films was additionally determined by the type of ‘chain’ rule, in which each of the participants chooses the work of one artist but must also refer to the work chosen by their neighbour. Here, the inter-textual clues become a method for building relationships between particular works and a way to shape the narration.

According to the participants, the course of this year's workshops can be described as ‘systematically relinquishing control’. Choosing a favourable formula for creating a variety of  coincidental situations, communication collisions occurring along the way between the participants, and then making a decision about the conscious pursuit of the state of randomness are all actions through which the project more and more closely starts resembling a counting-out rhyme until it finally ‘deserves’ to be called 'eene.meene'.

‘Eene.meene’ may function as a linear film or be totally coincidental. There are two generators coexisting within it. In the first of them, individual video episodes can be combined, collided with each other, transposed and connections between them, different to those originally planned, can be simulated. Thanks to the second generator, each visitor is nominated to create their own episode, following the same rules as those adopted by all sixteen workshop participants.
