Lital Dotan and Eyal Perry: Our Bed
Date Thursday August 26
Time 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Location Details
Marina Abramovic Institute
575 Sutter St.
San Francisco, CA 94102
Event Type Concert/Show
The performance deals with the archaeology of a relationship. In the performance, the couple's mattress is dug by Dotan and its inside layers are exposed. The mattress is deconstructed, its different materials separated and then assembled in a different order.
This exposed territory of the mattress implies the mechanisms that construct a couple relationship and at the same time points to its fragility: fabric, sponge, threads, wires and supporting coil system, all framed and packed into a solid base.

These materials are all separated and examined as objects of memory- an object that holds the memory of everyday life. The performance marks the risk it takes to examine the sexual and communicative territory of the couple--typically existing as an extraterritorial zone in the relationship--in which the dialogue is stuttered, rough and suppressed.
