Manda a dire Padre Orso / Send a Word, Bear Father, 2010

Jelena Vasiljev

Sinopale 3, “Hidden Memories, Lost Traces”
Curator: T. Melih Görgün

The project consists of a temporally extended static performance that involves living bodies – tableau vivant: local citizens of different age, who form sibling pairs defined by blood relation of the first degree (in this case, brothers and sisters), placed on different locations of the city and suburbs (places of great importance and commonplaces of everyday life).

Emotional dimension and intimate relationship among blood relatives depend on the direct connection between them, enforcement and often helpless position. Every physical change is emphasized through exposure of potentially countless details relating to the context and environment, surrounding architecture, and the slightest change of the whole relations equilibrium.

Performance, August 8-14, 2010, Sinop, Turkey
