VGN FRST (Vagina Forest) – an [artistic] universe. Although it has emerged out of a dialogue between two female Polish elbows and four androgynous French knees, its particles have a pullulating character. It fluctuates around heterogeneity and explores an amalgam of matters. It's an organism, partially autonomous, influenced by internal and external worlds. It's a frivolous forest and it is growing.
Vagina Forest liberates [us] primarily as humans, secondary as artists and essentially as women. It is an organism sprouted out of belief, that not forcing and exposing one, clear and individual identity, but pursuing artistic mutualism allows peculiar freedom to crude and uncompromising creative processes and enables them to grow due to the sense of community and support inscribed within such universe.
Vagina Forest emerged out of fear of ego being slowly replaced by acceptance of its ubiquity, especially within art. As one cannot pursue becoming egoless, we attempt to learn to notice ego and tame it, perhaps balance it, or just become more aware of it's impulses and influences. Perchance we simply try to question it, over and over again, until it looses it's transcendentalism and becomes everyday and sustainable; less fearful - more approachable.
VGN FRST emerged due to exploration and [personal] lacking of a platform meant for exhibiting artworks that pose an amalgam of various art forms and matters. It became a space, where we attempt to allow ourselves to translate the very personal artistic universe without dividing it into separate particles, and to allow it to become an autonomous and growing entity. As our backgrounds [in sound or art] and the temporalities we live in introduced us to technology, we decided to explore it further and examine, where it can pose a sustainable place for us to question, pullulate, blossom, discuss, disbelieve or explore. The project was [thus] influenced by an array of experiences and explorations; from [studying] electronic music, recording underwater sounds of melting glaciers or building a body controller to delving into 3D scanning, working with 2D and 3D visuals and projecting a potential VR art installation. The reasoning for the particular empirical and DIY approach characterizing VGN FRST arose as a result and a response to circumstantially becoming woven into the community of“women within music industry”.
