Performance and Sculpture:
A long night trip into the mountains of Northern Italy in search of a cave, a mythical place inhabited hundreds of years ago by a small community which has long vanished. In the darkness of that unreachable location the artist Jesse Perret installs a glass sculpture, leaving it to time and to the womb of the stone, where no spectator other than future speleologists will be able to see.
An exhausting performance by Jesse Perret and a meditation about the relationship between experience and time, the absence of any human counterpart that gives the art object a radical independence.
