REPUBLIC
2011



REPUBLIC is an event of shooting scenes of a gallery opening. The gallery is turned into a film set. The public is invited to take part in staged scenes as themselves. Five different scenes are filmed in the gallery under instructions of a director. All the participants, including the director and two cameramen, take an equal part in the performance. The audience, which plays itself, becomes the subject and object of the event, and is invited to embody their role as audience and to take responsibility for their own appearance.
