A performance that deals with a release of a female voice – off the leash and into the social abyss. This act takes a form of a monologue and functions also as a live/IRL version of an audiovisual project – www.WEBLEEDLIKEG.com – to be fully published on September 5th, please enjoy a preview for now.
The website as well as the performance are based on poetry I have been writing for the past 4 years. The poetry is a personal fiction written in a self-confident matter, elaborating on feminism, postfeminism, gender, love, relationships, religion, patriarchy, world wide web and confusion.
A selection of texts for the occasion are shuffled on the spot. A microphone to be used as an amplifer for the soft-toned voice. Calm vocal manner of the performance is important and functions as a notification that a quiet voice does not equal zero voice. Every voice counts, every word counts but off course there is always a risk of a message loss in the social abyss – the audience. A general visibility of this particular vocal tone is more important in this case. Numerous noisy industrial sound loops – mixed on turntables- are accompanying the vocal act. The rough soundscape serves as an extra struggle and a symbolic opposition to the tenderness of the voice.
Golubjevaite is a visual artist, poet and dj based in Amsterdam. She graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Amsterdam) in 2017 with a BFA from the VAV-Moving image department. Her works are often process-based. Different day calls for a different result and a version. Frequent recycling/ remixing/ modifying/ updating the projects is important part of her artistic practice. She is particularly curious about three stages of identity: the original – the alter – the virtual. It is not – To be or not to be, but instead – True or Fake?
