Pii Potti Potti

Pii Potti Potti (mrzb, Lynn Suemitsu with Ivan Cheng and Mina Tomic)

Pii Potti Potti expands an ongoing collaboration between mrzb*, Lynn Suemitsu, Ivan Cheng and it stems from the performance exhibition project Pot of Mormori in Bologna.cc, Amsterdam, in December with contributions by the above-mentioned artists and by artist Alexander Iezzi. Presenting itself as an audio-extension of the text-based-performance, originally presented in Bologna.cc, Pii Potti Potti has been re-framed in an open dialogue between the artists. The editing process attempted to give space to their individual practices, in order to sculpt and re-orient the original manuscript. Composed of three voices, a score for clarinet and a library of sounds, recorded at the Red Bull Studio Amsterdam, Pii Potti Potti gives a poetic, eerie hallucinating picture of a haunted house, where three fairy-like characters alternate conversations and virtuosi monologues with moments of choral derive. The voices, not presenting themselves as three closed-off separated identities, are constructed through processes of mimicry, expulsions and transitions in between. The result is an outlandish recital – where the voices repetitively absorb each other's presence overlapping, twisting and turning themselves throughout the piece - reflecting on a subconscious isolated domestic space, driven by loneliness and exhaustion. Concealed beneath a sleek surface, different layers of social critique meld with absurdist aesthetics and tragicomic narratives to create a homelike-schizo landscape of fantasy and desire, where heightened emotional states erupt in and through the domestic body.
