The Looper (Jerusalem)
Performative installation. In collaboration with Paolo Monti and Karin Pauer. Curated by Anat Safran & Tal Erez “The Looper” points at our complicated relationship with time and time efficiency in contemporary life. Concept drawings and neon works spread throughout the building and an interactive sonic and performative space offer various perspectives on the perception of time and views our existence as non-linear - a constant accumulation of repeated loops. The sonic and performative space invites visitors to participate in an accumulative sound structure. Using a looping device, a sound designer captures visitor's contributions turning them into a sonic collaborative manifestation of the now. In addition, a performer engages in practices of repetition and transformation which takes visitors' traces into consideration, adding an element of embodied captivation of nowness. The black and white concept drawings strip ideas down to a pointed formulation in the shape of a concise statement, an unsolved question or a witty remark.
