Pli brings together 22 conference chairs, obsessive rhythm, and one devoted man. On a small platform, Viktor Černický dives resolutely into the struggle for indefinite construction, reconstruction and deconstruction of the universe. The result is an intelligent and playful solo, a physical metaphor for endless human dynamics, patience, and striving that turns even the most ordinary objects into incredible pieces of architecture. Inspired by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, the iconic Baroque philosopher, and Gilles Deleuze’s stirring The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque, Pli is an unpredictable and humorous performance that twists our imagination and takes our breath away. Černický likens Leibniz’s thought to a magical performance without magic tricks, in which the philosopher brings together the seemingly impossible, approaching the complexity and refinement of this world with very simple principles, which he multiplies and folds in every possible way. Creation thus appears as a sophisticated piece of architecture, extremely rich in details, highly elaborate in style, robustly shaped, hard to believe, and yet simple, modest, and absolutely true. Following Leibniz’s approach, Pli replaces baroque robustness with spatial modesty and material minimalism, yet is neither narrow in form nor straightforward in expression.
