In the video installation consisting of ten video recordings, Goran Škofić treats his own body. Each video shows a multiplied figure of the author who in repeating rhythm performs just one action (workout in the gym, running, applauding in a concert hall…). In this way he realizes Baudrillard’s theoretical assumption of the simulacrum, enabled because of the possibility of electronic image’s mediation. He deconstructs the body into a naked “corpus” as he titled his work, liberating it of humanization, of bodily weaknesses like fatigue or mistake. Škofić’s character acts in the rhythm of incessantly repeating movements and has no
foothold either in the original or the truth.
