White Cave | Long Durational Performance | AS ONE | NEON + MAI
Nancy Stamatopoulou, dancer and performance maker (1976), Thessaloniki, Greece
In this allegory of Plato’s Cave, Nancy Stamatopoulou directs her own “spiritual confinement” within a reality composed of everyday objects. For eight hours each day over the course of seven weeks, the artist will remain within the narrow limits set by the sights of a camera lens, confined inside her own personal “cave” and the shadowy re-enactment of a personal truth. Time passes slowly, like the movement of a turtle. Actions are repetitious, like a punishment. Reality feels remote, the possibility of escape imperceptible.
