SILENZIO_eternal loopholes and braided line / 32. Biennial of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana 2017

SILENZIO_eternal loopholes and braided lines has been conceived around the perception of “silence” and developed around a new kinetic sculpture. The sculpture and its movement are extended through performance: gesture, sound, and spoken word. These elements coexist and form a state of perception; through a growing patteren and process of attempts and errors, the loops cooperate to build up fleeting moments of oneness.
The result is a choreography: the single parts come together in the “culmen” of the development, a condition of accord where the structured assemblage of the parts assumes its own consistency. In Meta Grgurevič's work there’s always a state of being active, since “absolute silence” doesn’t exist in nature (in Latin silèntium, from silère “to be quiet,” an activity). The essence of Silenzio is this active suspension.
