"Are We There Yet?"

Live Performance

Two living artists, economy class airplane seats, books, sandwiches and water

Brussels—11 Nov 2020

As an attempt to understand ourselves in relation to our environment we departed on the 11th of Nov 2020 on a 10H flight with the help of aircraft seats, two smartphones connected to social media’s live platforms, a speaker, some books, water and snacks. Where are we heading? To nowhere. 10H to find ourselves geographically at the exact same location. 

 

In the course of these 10H, the exterior environment stayed in a state of perpetual motion. Planet earth rotated almost 180 degrees around its axis and of course around the sun. The exterior environment outside our staged performance also keeps running like usual. 

 

Inside, in the flat, 10H of white noise — simulates a commercial airline flight. Our images are broadcasted and spreading live around the globe to multiple screens at the exact same time, propagating another kind of movement. We hope to understand this act even better one day in the near future.

Let's get in touch:
