Alexandra Do Carmo: A willow (Or without Godot) & Untitled (from the 2006 drawing series)
Process Room, 16.05.06- 21.05.06
Untitled (from the 2006 drawing series)
In the 2006 drawing series, one is lead through a narrative; the author is being portrayed as a chimpanzee. In each drawing he looks directly at the viewer. Inside his eyes, like a mirror image, one can see a studio scenario; a table, a chair, a window; initially the position of the chair creates the look and/or facial expression of the monkey.
The public is invited to lie down on a mattress and hear an audio piece. Each mattress is attached to a different audio piece.
The audio is taken from Beckett’s Waiting for Godot; one audio is taken from the character Vladimir and the other from Estragon. The public is taken to a place where the artist recorded each positive sentence from each of these characters in the play emphasizing a complicity, dependency and deep affection between Vladimir and Estragon. The sound of the sea plays in the background.
The floor of the process room is covered with gravel from the outside of the Museum.
