Gestures, Captions,¹ Architecture

Two deep-red spaces separated by a wall open up to the imaginary of the house and the fire. Shelter and heat are both tied to the familiar, to what is known, as protection. A minor twist, however, can quickly turn them into just the opposite.
Everything doubles and resonates in the other. Paintings and texts—images and objects apparently
hanging on the wall—seem to encode the coordinates of a story. The sculptural structures and bodies of the
performance as supports of a larger staging also seem to suggest the lines of a plot. While the paintings
are reminiscent of backdrops held up from behind, the texts with actions suggest the script of a play.
The structures and bodies—avatars of the house that is also their avatar—seem a little like phantasmatic
figures on (or off) stage. None of this comes together to compose a linear or certain drama. The resonances
crescendo precisely because those structures and bodies come before one another as fragmentary indexes
of a slippery and secret story.
