Something there

Spiral, Wacoal Art Centre, June 25, 2013 – Fatos Ustek and Per Huttner
The performance was a part of Godzilla and the Phoenix, the 11th OuUnPo session in Tokyo and Yokohama.

Taking the starting point in Nobel Laureate, Samuel Beckett’s 1974 poem entitled "Something There", Ustek and Huttner together with 13 members of the Japanese audience carried out a sonar/mathematical investigation. Together they explored the potentiality of the poem by an activating it in space and time. The performance took place in the service staircase of the art centre where an Araki piece formed an important backdrop for the performance. The photographic installation in itself is a reflection on experience versus image (inside outside) and his relation to the other (subject/object), offered a perfect setting for the experiment.
