The Lithuanian, New York-based artist, performer Ieva Misevičiūtė (b. 1982) describes herself “a former Lithuanian clown, and a practitioner of unproductive gymnastics.” For Le Mouvement, the artist presents a performance entitled SSSSSSSSSSSS, which will consist of a solo performed by herself. Under the belief that the public space is part of the social Organism built of material substances and structures of any sort (human/non-human, organic/inorganic, static/moving and etc.), the performer uses her body as a magnifier of these relationships and rhythms, providing a real-time translation of its surroundings. As such, the work becomes a fluid, if fleeting testimony of the lived world, where the distinction between what is human and non-human is unstable.
