At the end of the stairs, behind the glowing passage, there is a gate to a fantastic space station. In it: remains of a seventy-five-year long research history. Heaped up in scripts over scripts – a series of tests documenting the attempts to communicate with a strange, extraterrestrial entity and its failure. The crew seems to be running experiments behind the walls. Every now and then appear animal-like shapes and simulations. Like on the planet “Solaris” in Stanislaw Lem’s novel of the same title, in this performative installation we experience a secret place, which at the same time is a non-place – a space defying rational classification and understanding. The performance within develops and is generated by the decisions of the visitor, changing in every new passage – becoming whatever the person is bringing with him or her. All events are created live on-site and mutate constantly.
Good to have you here! You will find us.
