On Friday, February 24, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. in Circulation 2, Podhod Ajdovščina Ljubljana:
BENEFIT for better circulation
We are informing the friends of Circulacija 2 about a unique event that will try to fill the most urgent needs related to revitalizing the space during these cold months. We invite you in full, because this time the rule is non-art! A collection bag will move around the room for voluntary contributions to which all non-performers are entitled.
MASSAGE SHALL BE
TURBO GROSS TRUMPET
TECHNO DUB BOILER
PING PONG TOURNAMENT
Art is free in Circulation 2, and all listed contributions will avoid art. Deviations from non-art will not be sanctioned, but we will remember…
MASSAGE SHALL BE /Swiss watch without hands :: evergreen crocodile/
Thought is an attempt to draw a state without ownership, without masks*, without identification. What we think we are, we are not. When we read, we are not given to accept everything that is written. Our mind is jealous of another’s thought and darkens it every moment, there is no room in us for two smells at the same time. Even massage is not reliable, it is legendary to the greatest extent possible, it represents something like lunch in one’s sleep and remains in a network of delusions of all possible images. It’s just a kind of panorama soup out there (who’s eating it?). Only fragments will reach us (perhaps the little finger, kneecap or earlobe), just as from a dream only sand remains in the eyes. But here and there we come to the surface, we squint at the edge of the collection, and again quickly and lustfully sink into the bleached silence, which has no good or bad days and is more like a space that moves through space. Beyond the name that means emptiness. Beyond the concept of emptiness. When you arrive in it/yourself and nothing has ever existed here including your person, then who is there? Don’t think too much. It has nothing to do with you. The more you leave, the more you are. Book your trip now.
*Personality comes from the Greek root of the word “persona” and in translation means – mask.
For starters, treat yourself to an invigorating dose of mate tea and then indulge in the C2 entertainment program. When you are tired and in need of regeneration, join the ritual drinking of mate tea, where we will give each other a cup of joy in a circle. If drinking from the same container isn’t your thing, don’t worry! There will also be mate for individualists: pleasant mate cocido (boiled mate without milk), refreshing tereré (cold brewed mate) and sweet tereré ruso (mate with juice).
Mate enriches, strengthens and revives, so never doubt and indulge in its bitter taste, which will take you where your heart beats. Che is a term often used in riverplate Spanish, especially in Argentina and Uruguay. In the Guarani language, che means I / my-a, mate in the Quechua language means gourd (the vessel for drinking mate tea is usually made of gourd).
TURBO BRUTO TRUBO
is a dance-rhythmic puzzle in the manner of a vocal-instrumental ensemble. It comes from three key words: TRUBO (lyrics based on Serbo-Croatianisms and Turkishisms), TURBO (modern technological produced Gypsy-Latin rhythms) and BRUTO (modern brutalism replaces the timeless beauty of melos/pathos – as academician prof. dr. Milček Komelj would say).
Addendum: the dance improv group of the newly composed Lokice!
As the academician prof. dr. Jožef Muhovič would say: “I’m fed up with hungry artists!“. Or as a paraphrase: “We are hungry for well-fed artists!“
DESSERTS /the best desserts in town – try it if you don’t believe it…/
TOMBOLA /prizes accumulate…/
TECHNO DUB BOILER aka “Happy Drum Coils”
is a prototype percussion-experimental device. The inspiration came from the locals of Strunjan, where for a long time they have been upset about the rattling manhole covers. The investment is still under warranty, the municipality will request the elimination of these deficiencies. In Circulation 2, however, the drumming in the Techno / Dub / Experimental manner will continue.
interactive setting: computer cam that records (views the room), through VDMX (which listens to sound and changes parameters with audio analysis) to the projector to get
unique opportunity to have your portrait immortalized by the master’s hand and the sharp eye of an academic painter mag. Dominik Mahnič
