ROCA -real time web cam stream double performance double location ,March 31 ,2007

Theopelmus versus Bogdan Pelmus

locations: LOADING_OPEN LAB , Bucharest, Romania + Petite Mort Gallery , Ottawa , Canada

hours: 10 pm - Romanian time + 3 pm Canadian time

In 2006 La Petite Mort Gallery hosted the hotly debated performance Romanian Wound-Canadian Wound, where the artist was permanently branded with the 2 flags Romanian and Canadian. Not one to shy away from the prickly subject of displacement and belonging , Theopelmus will perform live with his artist-
brother Bogdan Pelmus in Bucharest , via web cam at the Closing party of the show Evolving Identity on March 31 at 3 pm(Canadian time).They will both walk on a white tightrope , doing their best not to fall off . It's you who will decide if you watch 2 men facing each other or just one man facing a mirror.
"Being the same , being in the same space , being in the same time , if I ask my brother from Romania what time is it , I'll be told that is 7 hours ahead . I never understood why has to be different time in different places . I thought that being able to speak with the other at a certain moment doesn't affect the time. Once I have the opportunity to speak with him , I would aspect to be told that his watch and my watch run the same. I'm sure that it's not a problem of time but one of broken watches ."

Salutare! Ma bucur ca promovati si va exprimati artistic prin evenimente de genul asta (Pollutin ma refer). Este un act necesar, intr-o societate in care oamenii nu (mai) pun accent pe estetic, arte, cultura, alternativ si experimental. Va apreciez! La cat mai multe performance-uri si succese! Ps: am promovat si eu evenimentul la mine pe blog.ciao!
