People in cities exist in double reality – they are observers constantly being observed by others. Through this act of observation they shape others and are being shaped by them. It’s close to impossible to imagine the landscape beyond one’s gaze. To imagine something that exists merely and absolutely, independently from their reference point and applied meanings.
Got Along Without You Before I Met You Gonna Get Along Without You Now is a rupture in the everyday observation patterns and urban structure. A place where presence and absence coexist.
How to become silent and attentive, how to freeze to let the space calm down and return to its natural state like troubled waters do? How to embrace one’s own absence?
This first collaboration between young multidisciplinary artists Artūrs Čukurs and Kirils Ēcis takes place in the territory that has not seen humans for decades in hours between sunset and sunraise.
