Different people will understand the same thing in a different way.
(Sol LeWitt, Artforum, June 1967)
Regular guests at PACT, Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki, alias fieldworks, are acclaimed for their poetic and humorous interventions in unusual, semi-public settings. With ›distant voices‹, they return to the realm of the stage to continue their exploration of space, particularly investigating the effects of spatial organization on the body and its perception. What happens if an architectural space exceeds its own borders from within? What if a situation breaks out of its spatial limits? Oscillating between visible and invisible zones, memory, anticipation and actual perception, between installation, performance and party, fieldworks invites us to accompany them on a journey which playfully counters our apparent notions of inter-personal and spatial actualities with other realities.
