performance – waiting

Performance Waiting by Connie Dekker at Museum for Contemporary Art Palazzo Fabroni, Italy.

A girl is holding a large bowl in her arms. Steadily from above, drops of water fall down. As time passes, the bowl fills up, transforming water into sound.

Approaching this scene, one discovers traces of an embroidery on the girls dress. The stitches are spread all over it and long threads emerge, circulating in the room, establishing a contact between our reality and the work.

During the years the artist continues to work on the embroidery of this piece.
