Ready 2 Die (2009)

video-performance, 15' 45"

Ready 2 Die is a video performance undertaken in the Muzeum Sztuki in Lodz (Poland) in 2009. Its structure recalls the conventions of conceptual art, performance and body art of the 70s. Radziszewski frames what the viewer can see by imposing his point of view and playing with multiple cameras. Questioning the concept of performance art, the artist sums this work as an ambiguous action of conscious voyeurism and "dressing" a naked male body in art.
