Black on Black is a hijack into the blackness of motion and textuality. Marta Ziółek takes its specific kinetics (dynamics and motion) and applies it into her own medium. The limits of her medium start with the limits of the skin, of physicality, and the presence of the body. How to move these “off”? Finding the blackness of dance. Thinking of dance as a black ‘thing’. Creating the “Black on Black” gesture now.
