The child cut piece, 2020 by Izabela Brudkiewicz
"The child cut piece", May 2020 is a re-enactment of iconic video performance “Cut piece” by Yoko Ono from 1965. This body of artwork is a part of an ongoing series of video re-enactments of master contemporary video art pieces with the addition of my children, created during the COVID- 19 pandemic, 2020. The series aims to explore how and to what extent the original context of the pieces is being changed by involving children.
