Maria Pask | Performance “DILATATION” at Richard Serra, Zeewolde | 19.06.2016

Richard Serra’s land art sculpture Sea Level consists of two long concrete walls, each divided into 18 parts. In between those parts, flexible joints – or dilatations – absorb movements and prevent the walls from tearing.

She invited various participants to prepare a short act based on their experiences of the artwork. Creators that are familiar with Sea Level because they live or grew up in Flevoland, or have extensively studied it. These acts will be performed in front of one of the elements of the artwork, subsequently move to an element further on, and then back again.

Beforehand, students of the Art Academy of The Hague will test the structure of the performance for its physical possibilities with a test performance. This process will function as a kind of model: an experimental phase that also formed a crucial part of Serra’s process of creating art.

Participants: Twee Nuchtere Meiden (Sandra de Vreeze-Knaken, Geke Dijkstra-de Vries, theater duo), Rebekka Bremmer (author), Linde Dirks de Groot and Liv Kluiters (play by Adrian Bridget), students Fine Arts from KABK (Melissa Dellouche- Ladrat, Vasiliki Giakoumi, Renée van Hagen, Emma Johansson, Hanna Ljäs, Julia Pinto, Jina Teranko, Kaitlyn Walker- Stewart), Ernestas Kausylas & Miša Skalskis (students sonology KC Den Haag), Elliaa Jutte (Quantum Vortex Scalar Wave Photon Pulse practitioner), Anja Novak (art historian), and Maria Pask.
