A la recherche in Ljubljana
A static version of our performance „A la recherche du temps perdu“ is being shown in Ljubljana at the Museum of Modern Art (Mala Galerija) in the exhibition „You own me now until you forget about me“. The exhibition shows work dealing with language and its rules and structures.
From the concept:
„Speech and the ability for meta-reflection on one’s language are inherent characteristics of human beings. … [T]he main thing the [artworks] have in common is that they take as their starting point an exploration of language, with all its arbitrary structures and rules, its various functions within society, its absurdities and constraints on the individual. Rather than focusing on the isolated – literary / literal – artwork, the exhibition highlights general artistic tendencies toward a discursive process that originates on the Internet and finds its way back to the ‚virtualities of real life‘.“
A short review is up at Rhizome. Thanks to Birgit Rinagl and Franz Thalmair for showing our work!
