AUDITORIUM

 video excerpt – Auditorium:
performance at the opening; duration: three hours; photography: Željko Badurina

In the large room at the opening of an exhibition an auditorium for 20 to 30 people is arranged. The whole time of the opening, extras of different ages are sitting in the auditorium. The spectator area is by itself, and is not functional, for it is not anticipated that visitors should sit in it, nor is it meant for watching any projection or performance. It works as a live sculpture or installation that draws the gazes of the visitors, but at the same time sends them back.

U velikoj dvorani na otvaranju izložbe postavljeno je gledalište za 20 – 30 ljudi. U gledalištu čitavo vrijeme otvaranja sjede statisti različite dobi. Gledalište stoji samo za sebe, nefunkcionalno je jer nije predviđeno da u njemu sjede posjetitelji niti je namijenjeno za gledanje neke projekcije ili izvedbe. Ono funkcionira kao živa skulptura ili instalacija koja privlači poglede posjetitelja, ali ih istovremeno i uzvraća.
