The reality moves into Lilith Performance Studio this fall with an exclusive intimate performance by the Danish artist Henrik Lund Jørgensen, where only two people at a time can take part in from the back seat of a car.
The performance - FARB - The Story About A Polyester Soldier (the 3rd (class) passenger) is a living movie scene that the viewer moves through and becomes part of. The scene is partly based on fiction taken from the visual arts, literature and film, but also a true story, a private experience, once told to the artist Henrik Lund Jørgensen.
In the performance at Lilith Performance Studio the main character is present, and the experience reconstructed to serve as the main emphasis of Henrik Lund Jørgensen's latest work.
The piece highlights the everyday synchronicity. Synchronicity is a term that stands for an observable meaningful coincidence with no causal connection. One can experience two incidents, which have no connection physically as if they are meaningfully linked to each other.
Coincidences that is so strong that you believe that higher forces can be in play.
Henrik Lund Jørgensen works with video, photography, text and installation and builds characters that are as clear as evasive in their personalities. Individuals that are both historical and contemporary, victim and executioner. Characters who leave traces but who know that the only true story is the one that the memory carries, cause the things we write down and leave behind us is always a construction created to be read and seen by others.
