A performative game about those obligations which contemporary life imposes on us: to do multiple things at the same time, aka multi-tasking.
Society is constantly attempting to speed up its output, offering us increasingly senseless technologies that seek to influence how we behave and render our know-how obsolete. We’re becoming multi-tasking beings, assisted in performing ever more actions in a minimum of time. Trapped in this futuristic scenario, implementing with efficiency and despite ourselves a maximum of diverse and simultaneous actions, while at the same time we are forgetting the limits of the human body and mind. Following the infernal rhythms of this life-size board game where we try to excel as this multi-tasking being, to recover our place in society, while being disempowered by so many distorted options.

It’s the audience that will energise and embody this performances. A deck of 78 playing cards is to be found at the entrance to the room: there are four categories of actions to be executed, marked by different colours on the back of the cards… The game can be played by a minimum of three and a maximum of ten people.
Tatiana Bohm has lived and worked in Brussels since 2005. She exhibits and performs, solo or collectively, in a wide variety of venues such as ISELP (Brussels), Les Drapiers Gallery (Liège), Wallonia-Brussels Centre (Paris), Ixelles Museum (Brussels), TAMAT (Tournai), Art on Paper (Brussels), 100 Titles Gallery (Brussels), Fine Arts Museum of Arras, Damien and the Love Guru Gallery (Brussels). Irrespective of her chosen medium , each of Bohm’s works presents for her a field of action: sculpture, installation, performance, drawing, video, photo… In her latest installations, Bohm has opened up new avenues of research integrating the collective gesture, in the form of a performative and participative installation. In her work, the individual artistic gesture is being shifted toward a shared construction.
