What If We Made A Video Game And It Was Like Dark Souls And All The Characters Were Artists (WIWMAVGAIWLDSAATCWA) is an enclosure of the audiovisual inputs of reality into the space of art that formally unifies performance and exhibition with the practices of organized interpersonal relationships.

WIWMAVGAIWLDSAATCWA will be shown as a live action game demonstration and audiovisual performance by @flufflord (Tea Stražičić), @pirate_sheep (Marta Stražičić), and @baojiaxiang (bod [包家巷]) featuring an Intel Realsense depth camera and songs from Music for Self Esteem.

The residency and commission is part of KONTEJNER’s upcoming festival Extravagant Bodies – the triennial international art festival which deals with social demarcations of normal and pathological, be they concerned with corporeality, appearance, behaviour, sexuality or life style. This year’s edition is entitled Extravagant Love: an international exhibition, performances, workshops, talks with artists and a conference bring together artists, researchers and scientists who are re-examining, deconstructing and re-constructing what it means to love, whom we can love and how to express that love.
