TOKPELA literally means “Endless Space” in the Hopi language. In Hopi mythology, Tokpela is the endless space out of which the Sun Spirit Tawa created the First World.
The activity of lingering, simply staying or being, and with it the experience of duration, of time not filled with activity, is gradually disappearing from our everyday lives.
Inspired by a text by the contemporary Korean-born German philosopher and cultural theorist Byung-Chul Han titled “The Scent of Time”, this show introduces two ethereal beings from a distant space who transform the world through silent lines and images. They extend an invitation to the audience to allow themselves to be transported to a space where the eye and the mind can experience a sense of homecoming, where the Self can linger. Our contemporary time - a time of radical changes in emotional and spiritual values - is questioned through movement, image and space.
