Whites Waiting / Whites Going In

Performance in situ / Wall painting and video

"For better or worse, it has been said, Slovenia awaits the tangible impact of its recent accession to the European Union. Some are calling this form of change measured, its careful transition due cause for continued celebration. I mainly wonder about the effect of waiting. Waiting as an embodied construct. And yet, if waiting were to be celebrated, what would it look like?" (Mara Verna)

Canadian artist, Mara Verna (Canada), will work/perform in public over the course of 6 days. She will be mute, yet communicative to passers-by. During this time, she gestures in preparation, ravelling, whistling, waiting. On the eve of the final day, a celebration of sorts ensues, with much fanfare and audience participation. The public is cordially invited to attend. In addition to her ongoing performance, Whites Waiting, Mara Verna will be at Škuc Gallery with live art documents, including a wall drawing, associated with her Ljubljana action, and the video Whites Going In.
