The Rope - Jenny Birger, Israel, 2016, 5', 16/9/16, 5pm @ANU

Synopsis: The Sisyphean circus artist is caught in a loop of small gestures; nothing grandiose, just the everyday basics. For her -- or him? --practicing is itself a performance; waiting is itself an act. Locked in this timeless space, the question remains: to hang on or to let go? Inspired by A. Camus' "Myth of Sisyphus", the mythological pushing of the stone uphill turns into climbing a seemingly endless rope. The continuous, repetitive labor brings her nowhere near the top, and what is the top, anyway? We will never know. We only know there is a smile on the way. "One must imagine Sisyphus happy."
