Aleskey Smolov (LVA/SWE) "O'l that"
/ work in progress /

"Ol'that is a performance where the relationship between me and the wheel is explored. Initial point was the common observation of a circus artist usually leading and being in control of the equipment he works with. So, I’ve questioned myself – what if the object becomes an agent of action and begins to control the person? In our everyday practice we tend to vitalize the object – sometimes talking with it, sometimes getting angry, feeling grateful and delighted. In such a moment the balance of roles appears – the object is considered as equal having own behaviour and agency." - Aleksey
