LONG DISTANCE CALL

by RAFAEL ALVAREZ / EIRA




ON TOUR » LONG DISTANCE CALL
 

 

 

 

LONG DISTANCE CALL concludes a trilogy developed around objects, identity, travels and love relations, initiated with the solo projects LAST CALL (2005) – on searching, hunting and matching and PRIVATE COLLECTION (2007) on protecting, selecting and keeping.

On this last piece, Splitting, Loosing and Missing are the conceptual lines that become present through a landscape performance-installation where objects and actions are transformed into rituals or simply in a collection of images.

This performance piece, created between Lisbon and Frankfurt, is about distances, faraway places, home, neighbours, strangers, families, tourism, money, maps, frontiers, stereotypes, regrets, meaningless objects, rarities, unknown feelings, lovers, couples, copies, languages, fake and reality, biographies, mirrors and other effects.
