Residency program September 15-September 27, 2019 | Cluj | „KINGKONG aaaaact5″

“A living organism is a collection of patterns and structures, therefore it is foolish to get rid of them, therefore the set of patterns can be very diverse while physical reality directly depends on them. Inner and outside patterns are creating the person we are today.

KINGKONG aaaaact5 is not a call for struggle and fight. I do not think we have the power to change a well-established system. The aspiration is simply to show the side of joy and consciousness we could catch inside structures and rules we don’t want to follow in the path of life. By sharing this inspiration we try to adjust the visibility of the way, ensure a fancy trip any way, while finding our system within the system.”
(Elena Vertegel)
