INTERMISSION (2013) Live installation

TEXT

“Think of a volcano that moves slow, takes its time and attempts to be still. Trembles and tension become the motion. Separated at adolescence, sculpture and dance move towards a shared destination where they are inseparable like Gilbert and George. 17 steps on the south wing, 18 steps on the north one are made out of pauses, interruptions, loops and delays. To commemorate it several living sculptures from one or two countries may arrive.”
Raimundas Malašauskas, Curator, “oO”, Cyprus and Lithuanian Pavilion
