'Everybody can be present' is a seven-day real-life performance and experiment by Jagoda Szmytka, thematizing modern life and existential questions associated with our technologized and mediated society.
For seven days, the BOX exhibition space at LYNfabrikken will be Jagoda Szmytka’s home. The small space will be decorated for 24-7 living, and there she will live, work, eat and sleep, sharing her everyday life experiences with visitors and passers-by. In line with her artistic vision, art and life will become one reality as the stage becomes her home and her home becomes the stage.
With 'Everybody can be present' Jagoda Szmytka seeks to explore human life and the mobility of the young, millennial generation through different themes connected to mediated society and modern ways of living. What are the lives of this generation like, and what drives them? How do we want to live now and in the future?
