shaking of the elbows to maintain balance and the slightly trembling of the ropes connected to the arms of the participating public while lifting the structure become the emotional moments and the center of this action. Architectural structures and the human figure are at once trapped in a moment of friction, tension, and failure—each looking for definitions, places or goals to be reached. With intensified actions of meaningless labor and struggle alongside a projection of simple natural acts of breathing, these four artists explore how the natural forces of balance, compression, tension and expansion can be amplified beyondaesthetic value into local, social and political spheres.
