HOUR OF SILENCE

I am sitting at a desk in the office of the City Gallery in Labin, keeping silent. Curators of the exhibition and visitors are also enjoined to silence. The performance is imagined as a kind of therapy session for the curators, who in the same space had many working sessions and spent hours and hours in intellect debates during curator workshops that went on all year, and also as a call for temporary community in silence for all visitors.

Sjedim za stolom u uredu Gradske galerije u Labinu i šutim. Na šutnju su pozvani i kustosi izložbe i posjetitelji. Performans je zamišljen kao neki oblik ‘terapijske seanse’ za kustose izložbe, koji su u istom tom prostoru imali mnoge radne sastanke i proveli sate i sate u intelektualnim raspravama za vrijeme kustoskih radionica koje su trajale godinu dana, kao i poziv na privremeno zajedništvo u šutnji za sve posjetitelje.
