HOLY DAY

REALITY RESEARCH CENTER

 

Holy Day was a 24-hour event, which consisted of installations, performances, workshops, discussions, silences, confessions, undressings, readings, meals at midnight and midday, drinking, music and sauna. It was also the final event of the research year 2010, the theme of which was Can the Sacred Be Performed? I curatated and organized both the event and the research year.
