Viktor Černický: PLI
A witty, suspenseful encounter between the physical bodies of one performer and stacks of chairs
PLI brings together 22 conference chairs, obsessive rhythm and one devoted man. On a small platform, Viktor Černický dives resolutely into infinite construction, reconstruction and deconstruction of the universe. The outcome is a clever and playful solo, a physical metaphor for endless human dynamics, patience and striving that turns even the most ordinary objects into incredible pieces of architecture.
Inspired by the baroque philosopher Gottfried Willhelm Leibniz’s principles of physics, PLI is an unpredictable and humorous performance where robustness is replaced with spatial simplicity and material minimalism.
