Is the role of a limit to be a passage to another space?

Sound walk and installation, 16’47’"
Concept and Text: Ioana Lupascu
Sound Editing: Maoyi (Peixuan Qiu)

The piece, disguised as a letter not to be sent, departs from an old photograph of myself and my mother, and the short film A Month Of Single Frames directed by Lynne Sachs and Barbara Hammer. The text explores the relationship of synchronicity across time, techno music, fragmented memory and the relationship to a birthing body.

Formally, the work unfolds in the interior of a theatre in Arnhem. The space is transformed into a club, echoes of heavy base music, smoke and flashing lights. A back door opens, audience is encouraged leave the stage and start playing the audio piece on their phone as they explore the surrounding neighbourhood. 

The work was first presented as a facilitated audio walk in Arnhem, NL as part of the presentation on practice at Dutch Art Institute.
