Square

2018 – KoresponDance Festival – Žďár nad Sázavou

The work refers to the same-named Swedish movie. Therein, curator of contemporary art museum of Stockholm commissions “The Square”, an installation which invites passersby to cultivate altruism and reminds them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. Everything goes wrong in the movie – the installation creates disgust rather then altruism, the curator resigns, and contemporary art as cultural discipline is (justly) criticised, even ridiculed,. We, however, set for less noble yet still worthwhile goal. We aimed to create an ephemeral and playful installation that both public and dance practitioners can freely enjoy.

The work was installed in publicly accessible courtyard of Zdar Chateau as part of KoresponDance festival 2018, in Czech Republic.
