OFF PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION
7.4.2018, Tiivistämö, Suvilahti
OFF is a durational performance installation about a power cut. Power cuts occur in the duration of the work in the space and they also serve as the philosophical framework. The backgrond material for the work has been philosopher Jane Bennet's book Vibrant Matter which researches the non-human agency of matter and things.
OFF is a study into the world of electricity where humans comprehend their being through visual experiences and thinking processes and proposes other ways to be in the world.
OFF is 12 hours long and the spectators are free to move around the space and leave when they want to.
The work includes many looped power cuts, during which the space will be almost dark. There will remain some light spots in the space all the time. The work does not include strong flashing lights.
Working group: Milka Luhtaniemi, Joonas Siren, Nicolina Stylianou, Elena Rekola
