Performance in Zeewolde
Come to Zeewolde on 2 September for Helena Keskküla's performance. This performance is organised by Vleeshal in consultation with Land Art Flevoland.
Helena Keskküla is interested in stones and boulders. This interest started in Estonia in 2020 and now brings her to a basketball court on the Woldstrand in Zeewolde, Flevoland.
The performance with three performers and four boulders will take place on 2 September from sunrise to sunset. In the midst of the boulders, performers Lidwien Ponsioen, Rose Akras, and Dianthus will activate the site through the durational and laborious production of concrete, tear-shaped objects that will accumulate over the course of the performance. Persistence, joy and fatigue will inform the work as the day progresses, which is why you are encouraged to attend the performance for a long period of time, slow down, perhaps even spend several hours with the work, to see it grow and shift back and forth from a site of production to a mythological destination.
