Liis: I came here a few years ago just to be. I had visited this place before, but this time I came to a place where there was no function, people had left. This space simply was, holding things and time, without expectations or demands. It fascinated me. I needed it. That's how we started being together. The space began to guide and mirror me, and I started to notice and follow. Everything that is here has already been and is yet to come. Now you are here too. Welcome!
This apartment is a typical living space built on 1973 with all conveniences and where every room has its certain function that has for decades allocated the rhythm and ways of being and moving for the people that have lived here. This apartment has its past and its future, but in our focus is this current time and the people who meet here during July 6-9.
Liis Vares is a choreographer and artist. In the center of her practice is the contemporary body. Attention is her ‘dancer’ with whom she dances in black box, white cube and on grayscale online platform. She plays with borderlines between physical and mental, between personal and social. By following her research question: how does it feel/what does it mean to be in a body, she is diving more and more into transmedial spheres of art and being.
