July 2nd, 2017, 10:00am-06:00pm, Museum of Natural History, Ljubljana
JAŠA & Loup Abramovici
“What is there for a museum to be considered as a museum? How many stones, how much water, how many hours of work, how many workers?
How to honor the people, the different aspects, things that allow a visitor to face a mammoth or any other marvelous artifacts exposed in such a place with our own voice of passion and responsibility towards the now?”
The Artist choose The Museum of Natural History of Ljubljana as a fitting context for their durational performance entitled 'The Last Dance'. Open to the public on Sunday, June 2nd from 10 am to 6 pm, they will inhabit the rooms of the Museum. Their intentions are to exercise their will and convictions about potentials of an idea, concept if constrained to non-lasting forms. In contrast with historical and natural fact exhibited within the Musem, their gestures will come through only with the use of their presence, movement, and voices. Activity within the Museum of 'what was' will serve as a limitation and amplify of their manifested will and convictions.
L: Different possible tracks crossed my mind as well. For instance, how would we be seen, what story would be told about us, if we were to be found a thousand years from now?
J: Or can the walls witnessing our actions pass on our intentions to new generations? People do. And they can tell stories.
