spend the night with me
In this durational performance, I spent 11 hours between dusk till dawn with a stranger, during the lockdown in May 2020. We promised each other to enter the ‘realm of unfilteredness’* in our conversation. For this work, I collaborated with someone who I met accidentally on a dating app. From isolation, we were looking for a way to explore relational aesthetic work in a new way, in the spirit of our time. During the whole night, we kept our 1.5 meters and after the sunrise, we returned home.
*the term “unfilteredness” is based on Jan Verwoert’s writing
