On the pyre of her fashion addiction, Maria Magdalena Kozłowska, together with jazz musician Bjørk Delcroix Semey, dives deep into the loneliness of this dreamlike dumpster. In search of an erotic relationship, they serenade their clothing. Moving between a fashion victim’s suicide note and a requiem for consumerism, they approach fashion with an almost necrophiliac desire.
The unexpected encounters between objects and performers result in funny and monstrous living sculptures. The musical score, full of echoes and loops, creates a psychedelic soundscape enriched by contemporary music. Appalling and obscene, yet weirdly appealing.
About the maker
In her work, director, singer, and performer Maria Magdalena Kozłowska (PL/NL) explores the connecting and revolutionary potential of the human voice. With classical singing, music, video, visual art, and live performance, she creates performances and interventions that bridge the gap between individual and society, tradition and transition, past, present, and future.
Maria has been associated with Frascati Producties since 2021 and her first production COMMUNE has premiered the same year. Dead Skin is her second performance at Frascati Producties.
