Presented in association with the Center for Performance Research, “CLUSTER 7–Even Silence has a Shape” is an experimental project curated by Jeanne-Salomé Rochat and Alusia Slowinski and is made up of punctual situations that will emit a declension of signs, during five consecutive days in New York City, at Center for Performance Research, NP Contemporary Art Center and Silvershed.
Those signs, visual, verbal and spatial, are gravitationally bound to a core problem of perceiving, interpretating and translating languages, especially when produced under different contextual circumstances such as history, discipline or social factors: How is it possible to translate, to stress reception of a work, especially when the embedded specificity of a community is itself undergoing constant transformation? In such cases, what can be properly Â«realizedÂ»?
Punctually, circumcised interventions will invest the spaces, inscribing, exhibiting, performing or commenting sections of works that most of the time happened, are happening or will happen elsewhere.
To what extent can we engage the audience today? How translatable, potentially transcendable, and memorable are the boundaries of the statements that are actually exhibited?
