Jury Statement

With an exceptional intensity, Otto Krause and Milan Loviška work with unconventional formats and strategies, inspired by transdisciplinary research processes. Between aesthetic opulence and reduction, physically intense, atmospheric-imaginative works emerge, whose underlying concepts merge aspects of pop culture and science, such as superhero comics, psychology, pornography, biology, new electronic media, religion, film sciences, or philosophy. In their performative investigations the two artists generate strong sociopolitical statements, which are marked by an unmistakable artistic aesthetic.

The proposed project Furrious explores artistic processes of furrification and plushification in a physically intense performance, which walks the physical, spiritual, sexual and psychological borders between human and creature through the phenomenon of infantilisation.
