The store is a place of accumulations, sedimentations and leftovers. Raising the question what is in center and what is at the periphery of artistic activation – considering the process as well as the result of it – authors team Krajac, Korencic, Kurtela sets a performance which pulls out performative fragments out of their primary context and sets them in to the context of an object, item or artefact. Instead of careful preservation of the art as manifestation we transport allaccumulated archived performative material in to the environment of objectual desire opening the discourse what is of value, what is documentation, and, if the performative trace transported in to the other media regains its new primary urgency. THE STORE is after the premiere open for another two days for shopping, program of dramaturgical activities, talks and socializing.
