HERE is a live installation composed of a four-hour loop that repeats itself based on the opening hours of the hosting institution, inviting visitors to share time and presence with six dancers. For several weeks, the dancers navigate a choreography that unfolds at a decelerated pace within a golden sculptural environment. Embedded in a sound composition, a female voice fades in and out, counting the seconds as they pass, from 1 to 14,399, underscoring the eternal succession of time. Immersed in this continuous continuum, the dancers' movements create a situation of ever-changing presence, one that demonstrates the slippery nature of "here-ness".
