The Tankwa desert reminds us vehemently of our impermanence; surrounded by ancient undisturbed rocks we cant help being reminded how transient we are. In this place we must tread lightly; in reverence.
Eensaam looks at our relationship to landscape and space, how we define and are defined by the places in which we find ourselves. Through the cube, a vessel of space, a physical representation of space; we created a stage on which human can interact with the vastness of a full and perfect landscape. We bring a piece of our own space into this place and impose ourselves on the ancient land to briefly have a say. A largely improvised performance, the performer looks at the emerging themes of solitude, isolation and aimlessness. As impermanent as us and our ideas the cube left the desert and it will reappear in a new landscape where we start again.
