Crowd Crystal is a video-performative project conducted by Anna Jochymek and curated by Klio Krajewska
Through her performative action – that took place in London between 2017 and 2019 in the aftermath of the Brexit referendum vote – Anna Jochymek explores the concept she developed and named the ‘space of fear.’ She came up with this concept because she felt that there is a lack of terminology to express her personal experience of the dynamic of ongoing socio-cultural transformation. The project is driven by a need to speak up about the issue of limitation of perspectives, its relationship to power and how it affects the social atmosphere of our time.
For the purpose of this project she wears her father’s military field uniform, combined with inline skates. This unorthodox fusion became the instrument for addressing the social climate in Europe suffused with tension, gravitas and absurdity.
The outcome of the project is a video installation, which is designed in a way in which viewers can almost physically feel the space of fear surround them -yet they are located in a peaceful centre.
