MEETING POINT VIA PONTICA Performance, installation, lecture

10 February 2004 - 01 March 2004


Via Pontica – the spring flight of the birds is a term which focuses the efforts of the authors in the direction of a sensual, time-bound natural art. Studying the field of the symbolic they rediscover the sign of the paleo-maze. Its complex structure represents a harmonious agreement of opposites, which build up a whole and at the same time something different. The ROAD provokes them, passing through, to start artistic attempts within the natural motion. It seems as if down to the most obvious way of moving of the bi-pedal creature – simple walking. Stimulating a process of personal studying, their art turns into a sign. The artist, in the act, literally turns into a carrier of a symbolic meaning, using mechanical inventions, which in various ways impede or determine the motion and create a hybrid walking form: a man + construction. In a maze, in spheres, with stilts, with unordinary “shoes” on the feet, feet fixed with concrete in a Russian weeble, the authors pass the distance from the impossibility to the attempt, in the search of the common way or the possible directions to go.
Using the natural environment, hidden or public places, with their specific expression they turn these into the artists’ playground.
