„No Man is an Island” by Vytautas Jurevicius

in context of the exhibition opening of New Frankfurt Internationals: Solid Signs
Frankfurter Kunstverein

Made up out of multiple parts, this performance by lithuanian artist Vytautas Jurevicius consists of a series of interventions. Central to these is the interaction between people from a variety of backgrounds and the blurring of reality with the staging of the performance. The work thematises rituals of human interaction. The performance will take place at both Kunstverein locations and, by means of small spatial changes, invites the viewer to analyse their own patterns of perceptions.

„Warum es ein Außen braucht“ (Why we need an outside, 2015) by Kristallo (Jonathan Penca, Charlotte Simon, Zink Tonsur)

in the context of the Kick-off event program of New Frankfurt Internationals: Solid Signs
Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden

“The extraterrestrial super-organism called Kristallo, a utopian sphere created in 2012 by the artist collective of Jonathan Penca, Charlotte Simon and Zink Tonsur, has a firm place in an age when ideas of how we should live are constantly changing.
Genderless entities lead an esoteric existence in this sphere.”

The performance “Kristallo – Warum es ein Außen braucht” (Why we need an outside, 2014) is a continuation of the story. It tells the tale of a reality in a dancing cosmos, emphasizing the importance of discovery and experience of an outside world. Here it becomes necessary to send astronauts into outer space on a mission to collecting information and experiences and feeding them into the collective network. This ensures the continued existence of Kristallo. The three spatially separated actors communicate purely by means of electronically generated sounds, musical instruments and sung texts. Their relationship with one another and with the astronauts living “outside” is symbiotic.
