We are proud to share that our friend and studio attendee Despina Zacharopoulou is doing a long duration performance in Greece as part of AS ONE – a project commissioned by the NEON Organisation and the Marina Abramović Institute (MAI).
Despina’s piece is called ‘Corner Time’ in which she explores the mental spaces that open up during control exchange in human relationships.
And we are proud to say that the rope being used is Anatomie Studio rope!
Over the course of seven weeks, for eight hours per day, the artist will “host” the audience in an enclosed space and perform a set of actions combining methods and goals drawn from practices of meditation, discipline and restriction. The goal of this piece is to create potent, experimental situations of control exchange while playing with the multiple functions of the gaze: a mechanism for introspection, surveillance, recognition and communication.
The performance is taking place at the Benaki Museum every day 10/03/2016 – 24/04/2016
