The exhibition Blake fruid presents a multi-channel video and sound work, evoking the body of the vocalic chorus in relation to the swirl of text-based language. Various parallel and intersecting narratives unfold, presenting a figure of an unreliable or unstable narrator, a narrator who is always in motion. The weaving narrative treats language as raw material through the voice and through text, borrowing and reconfiguring language from a variety of sources, including YouTube instructional videos, online self help forums, motivational status updates, linguistic textbooks, car maintenance manuals and cowboy song lyrics.
Samuel Brzeski’s current work deals with the situation of language within the post-digital context, particularly in relation to articulations of affect. His predominantly text-based projects search for the place and presence of the emotive body within the post-digital excess of language. This involves exploring the inherent malleability of language to create and/or question meaning, narrative and experience. Samuel is based in Bergen, Norway.
