Déjà vu, 2008

Performance in public space / Duration: 120 minutes

In a park, two identical occurrences between two different couples, are taking place within thirty meters of each other:

A man is standing as if waiting for something. A woman approaches and stops a meter away from him. She rummages for something in her bag, an orange falls out of it, but she doesn’t notice. She glances at the man. He looks at her; their eyes meet for a few seconds. She continues on her way.

The sequence is two minutes long, and in both cases, once completed, it begins again. The loops are repeated continuously during two hours, shifting in and out of synch with each other. With each return the number of oranges on the ground increases – an indication of all the previous encounters, which remain suspended on the brink of potential.
