"Performance is a contact with public...

       ... it is a self-immersive presence..."

Local

Anchor

Local am I

with the anchor

A local place

is where the anchor is placed

My place searches for a stable trace.

But the wet spot disappears

But the line on me appears

As a trace of the past

As the hope, the present lasts

¨I am here¨.

There was light

Performance, January 2022,

Aude Guillet´s exhibition Lumen. Svitlo Gallery. Lviv, Ukraine.

Sand, matches, light, voice, 3 shells, memories, thread, steps, key, drawing.

Light accompanies the presence. It lasts like a voice as long as there is breathing. We move and create. Each one looks for his own key while being alive. But only the Saints have all the keys. And we can only remember those who are not here. We can only remember the shells from the sea from our childhood.

Dedicated to my husband, Petro.

Only saints have all the keys. Terra Mater

Performance, November 2021,

Magic Carpets Landed. Kaunas, Lithuania.

Chair, women that work in the Kaunas Picture Gallery, sand, circle, key, talk.

The staff of Kaunas Picture Gallery are women. Some of them have been working there for about twenty years. They know all the corners of the building and its history, and they create its contemporary stories. These women are the soul of this place. But they are mostly invisible people. 

We often lose a person's authenticity and truthfulness through the routine. What about talking to the person and about her?

Svévolnosti

Performance, September 2021,

FNAF. Altenburg 1964, Prague, the Czech Republic.

Dress, black pants, swimsuit, rope, vertical, diagonal, circle, stairs, up and down, storytelling, bucket, water from the river Vltava, cargo ship.

The event takes place on an old cargo ship that is in the water, but it is no longer sailing. "Altenburg 1964" is a place for memories. The river makes the time more visible. This performance is about truthfulness and sincerity as a kind of nakedness. It is a story about my grandmother, who could not swim, never wear pants, and considered many things lewd.

Presence

Performance, July 2021,

Letino Festival. Letino, Italy. 

Stones, sound, rhythm, eyes, sculptures, people.

The collected local stones retain the history of this place. It is a building material, and it is a piece of nature. These are rough sculptures that tell us about Letino and its inhabitants.
