Below the Surface

Performance by Roi Vaara

The blindfolded performer washes white T-shirts in water, which colors them red. He hangs them to dry on clotheshorses. The dripping water colors the floor. There goes ten T-shirts on one clotheshorse. The performer fills many clotheshorses. After the performer has filled all the clotheshorses he turns on the lights, a bulb above each one. There will be a special sound prepared for this performance. It consists of lists of words collected since 2001: words of today’s world.

This evening is presented by U-TURN Quadrennial for Contemporary Art and realized in cooperation with the 5th berlin biennial as part of the collaborative project Opening Hours.
