Milka Djordjevich Website

Bob is a manic whirlwind of methodical, rapid-fire movements dictated, performed, and self-enforced by Milka Djordjevich. Set to bold music and silence, Bob eroticizes the labor of the dancing body—the repetition, the discipline, and the fallout. A mid-career taxonomy of sorts, Djordjevich confronts demands to optimize her female body and the market’s expectation to enhance her performance over time. Bob is an alter ego trained to be so skilled as to become other—the perfect kinetic subject in the service of her audience. Algorithmic movement patterns conjure approaches from trance, folk ritual, and rite—they become a means to no end. A reflection rivaling the self, Bob is on a rampage with and against self-consciousness to bask in reverie, delusion, desire, and rage. Show no mercy!
