103°52’74”N 103°70’41”WE — Mannertenvälinen muotokuva-performassi sunnuntaina 2.10., 12:00–14:00. / Intercontinental portrait-performance on Sunday October 2, 12:00-14:00.
103°52’74”N 103°70’41”WE will be performed on Oct. 2nd, 2011 at XL ART SPACE in Helsinki, Finland and Oct. 1st/Oct. 2nd, 2011 at Nuit Blanche/LEITMOTIF: Dioramas in Toronto ON, Canada by artists Tamara Platisa and Sasa Rajsic. Platisa & Rajsic will engage in a Skype conversation that has video and sound. They will project each other’s images on a blank wall and begin to paint one another’s portraits in black and white tempera until an external factor prevents them from continuing. Their brushstrokes will be determined by how much paint they have on their brushes. Once a stroke is completed, they will turn around and stand in front of the camera. The images that Platisa & Rajsic create are personal and a reflection of their physical location, movements on the projection and the quality of their Internet connections. In an exchange of lines on a wall they make the intangible, tangible.
