Kiss and Fly is a space installation on memorising and chewing located at former shashlik bar at Adoffi 10. The initial starting point for the installation was a diagram drawn by Jenny Holzer on 1976. It is an abstract, schematic drawing of a city, below the drawing there is a text: “Retrospective painting as seen during the no past condition”.

Kiss and Fly unclasps itself from memories and stands against dragging along things, people, stories and traditions as well as repeating patterns.

This artificial city built for the festival reminds us that all spaces that we spend time in mental and physical world are liminal and meant only for passing through.

Inga Salurand is a performer working in the field of contemporary art, who does not want to limit her work to a certain medium. Her means of expression are performing arts, graphics, sculpture and sound. In the last years she has been working with concepts around liminal spaces. The goal of her artistic practice is to map intermediate areas, both physically and mentally, by discovering gaps or spaces that seem to say nothing. It can be liberating, it can be boring, but it is also the key to stimulating the imagination.

Anthropologies of Space

“Kiss and Fly” is part of an interdisciplinary (performance)art project “Anthropologies of Space initiated by eˉlektron. It will result in the creation of three new works at this year’s Baltoscandal. As the name suggests, artists deal with space and human. The environment and conditions around us are something that we perceive on a daily basis as "the thing in itself" - something that has been given to us but has become more and more strongly influenced today. Be it a global pandemic or a virtual reality that is becoming more and more a regular part of our sense of space.
