Pomane za gastarbajtere – Performans na otvorenom

Rad se sastoji iz dva segmenta. Prvi deo je video instalacija pomane – elektronski zapis o dogadjaju u selu Neresnica, na kome _ena daje mu_u pomen a ujedno i sebi pomen za _ivota. Oboje su biv_i gastarbajteri. Video instalacija treba da se odigra u tipi_nom malogradjanskom miljeu sa svim detaljima enterijera koji taj do_ivljaj _ine potpunim. Drugi segment je prikaz gastarbajtera koji nosi sa sobom dva ogromna kofera a oko vrata mu je konopac privezan za drvenu kutiju koju on povla_i sa sobom. U kutiji je zemlja sa sve_im busenom trave i zabodenom tablicom na kojoj dvojezi_no pi_e „Moja zemlja“. Ova dva segmenta se spajaju u jednu celinu dolaskom „gastarbajtera“ do televizora i _inom pripaljivanja sve_a koje su deo dekora a ujedno i vrlo va_ni obredni simboli u ovom ritualu.

Commemorations for gastarbeiters – A performance in the open

The work has two segments. The first part is a video installation of the commemoration – a video about an event in the village of  Neresnica, which shows a woman giving a commemoration of her husband and at the same time her own commemoration while still alive. Both of them are ex-gastarbeiters. The video installation should take place in a typical small-town milieu with all the interior details which complete the event. The second part shows a gastarbeiter who carries two large suitcases and has a rope around his neck which is tied to another wooden box that he drags along. The box contains a lump of earth with grass and a small plate that says “My Country’’ in two languages. These two parts integrate into a single entity with the gastarbeiter’s coming to the television set and lightening the candles which are a part of the decor and at the same time very important symbols in this ritual.
