Piotr Krzymowski on Kalina / Kalina
Video artist Piotr Krzymowski is joined by painter Paweł Kałużyński in this discussion of his 2012 video essay, which reflects on matters of replication and cloning in the realm of art.
The artist casts an actress with a likeness to an icon of Polish cinema in the 1960s, and sets frames of her replicating famous scenes alongside the originals. This conceptual narrative is spliced with scientific and artistic ruminations on cloning, time travel and replication, and notions of the existence of the soul in the realm of such manipulation.
