How to make/ create a ritual?
Ritual : a set of actions in a visible order.
Sequence of activities including gestures, words, objects, dance, music and an image.
Is performed in a sequested splace and time.
“Doing is beliveing”
One of my possible actions of purification ritual is also to project my water-paint videos on the top of the tent-womb.
To emerse my spectators with water /purification I will also use sound and perhaps light design, interaction with the body as a shadow- as in a womb.
Here is one part of possible video, to project it on top or sides of the womb- inside space of the ritual where spectator becomes a participant- by choice.
To make a conclusion, this can become also a self-depended installation of purification.
In this semester we had an opportunity to work with a stage designer Sanna Danz.
Our mission was to make an idea, proposal or an actual MEETING POINT with the title :
“Lets get togehter!”
My idea was to make an installation at which public is the main artist. It means, to make a half done work. Its main meaning is for people to meet under or around the installation. By meeting and gathering , an installation would be built by people them self. Main idea therefore, is the process of creating a piece of art together.
The concept arrives from the quote; “We are all part of a universal pattern”, which is a regular shape of Hexagonal.
This particular pattern can be find in almost all natural structures for instance not only in honeybee combs and sunflowers structures but also in most of the chemical structures which can bare multiple parts in one single form. Hexagonal form is commonly used in architecture, design and building fields because it is a universal pattern to hold many parts in one single form or shape.
I decided to use this pattern as one shape, which is in my case a curve shape or “a cave”. My intention is to create a cave under which people would meet and gather.
An important part are pieces, which my audience would add to the iron web of hexagonal forms or to the “cave form”. My plan is to use parts of a plastic bottles into which people would add their seeds. Seeds are symbols for life of course. In my case all together would mean;” to add a part of your life to unity of one pattern”. Furthermore, it also means to create a “cave of life” in which each of us has his /her own part.
To make a conclusion, my idea is about the process of meeting and gathering. My meeting point would be built or finished by its own public through time and space. At the same time life of plants would add a symbolic meaning of our life as temporary state of being. Finally, it is all about being part of one shape at the same time and place, to participate, to add your part to a “bigger picture”.
This week I have presented my research about a young curator Elena Filipovic.
She is known as non-authoritarian curator who is interested in young, active, democratic artists, who are working with public/non public space. Her approach of re-do, re-install and negotiate has truly inspired me towards curating and understanding the importance of exhibiting artistic work as well as presenting artists as to honer them and their work as transparent as possible. Elena has curated retrospective of Felix Gonzales Torres in art gallery in Basel, where she is main curator.
Boukje Schweigman, inspired me with her non-verbal approach, which makes strong emotional and sensorial effects. I like the way she approaches and engages her spectators as well as development of the performance through space and time. Schweigman performances always include natural material, narrative stories and all togehter they create a strong visual and sensorial impressions. Each performance is a well planned masterpiece which leaves me shivered and inspired.
