A Performance Lecture About Falling in Love
'While in Istanbul six weeks ago, the artist Oliver Walker met a girl from Lyon. They spent three days together, fell in love, and went their separate ways without discussing their future. Upon returning to their respective cities, they did start to write, to get in touch, and get closer.
The artist had already been reflecting on the architecture of coincidence involved in meeting people prior to his Istanbul trip. His meeting someone there, however, turned his disparate ideas into something real, and culminated in the piece we see here tonight.'
The above text is the one projected on the wall during the first performance within this project. The project attempts to deal with love, authenticity and a few other problems on the way. It takes the form of a performance lecture in two parts, a journey, and a blog.
