Link object by Boryana Petkova
Link, glass performative sculpture, dimensions 100x2200x20mm

A piece of glass, is stretched horizontally. On each side of this glass line, two screens in symmetry broadcast two « hands-handcuffs », one on each screen, that the glass object connects. Two people shot off camera in a frantic dialogue. Both hands in close-up are trying to draw. Two thoughts in action try to communicate. Two hands, two thoughts sometimes in synchrony, sometimes in arrhythmia, sometimes together, sometimes against, sometimes against their will. In this movement of pendulum, the two people seek to coordinate, to avoid breaking, or so, to provoke. The forces cancel each other out, the forces are tenfold. Resist, submit. Impose, abdicate.
