Artist: Tereza Sikorová, Tomáš Moravanský
Performed: Tereza Sikorová


A window from the gallery painted white, facing the interior of a residential complex under an open night sky, beyond which is an area where a local community of young people probably gather for a relaxing time around a fire and live music. What is going on outside the window can be partially guessed from the firelight shining through. Someone outside is having a good time.


(She is dressed similarly to the figure in the photograph left on the sill of the adjacent window. It‘s a frame from the X-Files series itself, from an episode featuring the other main character guest actress Lucy Lawless, also known for her role as Xena the Warrior Princess. Lucy doesn‘t move either. No one could recall the content of these episodes.


The blinds hanging two meters from the window, basically almost in the middle of the room, from the folded part, remembering the previous movement of the hands. Blinds bent at eye level. A portrait of Dana Scully hangs askew on the back wall, with another covered blind in the background. You can‘t see it here. It‘s as if everything is moving forward, along the spatial planes, into another and another mise-en-scene - as if the figure standing in front of the window were to stand outside.)
