Project: Survive

“Project: Survive” is a participation based durational performance artwork.

WHAT: A nervous tick, a compulsion, a superstition, a ritual… to cope with the fact that our fate is no longer in our hands, all of us embrace these practices. In these times when we seem to have forfeit our lives to fortune and the random machinations of an unseen threat, we strive to regain some control over our lives by repeating these small rituals every day. And each day we do so, we challenge our destiny and survive.
One person’s ritual is madness, while a community’s a religion. Therefore, I present to you “Project: Survive”, where I ask you to create and perform together a simple daily ritual. Your rituals, which will be in the form of a simple bodily gesture to be executed in a specific time of the day, will be performed everyday and live by me here @project_survive.

HOW: To participate; just fill out the form found in this account with your ritual’s name, its time of day, a simple body action and its consecutive repetitions (up to 11). And let us join in our struggle to survive.

WHEN: From 06.04.2020 until the quarantine is over. You can follow the schedule from @project_survive.
