At intervals during MIRRORCITY Pil and Galia Kollectiv's installation Concrete Gown for Immaterial Flows becomes a stage for a series of musical performances programmed by the artists.
Concrete Gown for Immaterial Flows (2014) takes its title from a line in a Zionist song, in which pioneers promise to clothe the motherland in ‘a gown of concrete and cement’. Unlike the nation state, capitalism is seldom celebrated like this, and as the artists point out, is more often than not disguised as 'nature'. In Pil and Galia's sculpture capitalism's virtual, immaterial financial flows are captured in a monumental display, making the ruling ideology of our day present and visible.
All of the performances will be recorded. They will be available to listen to, following the events, on the headphones accompanying the MIRRORCITY installation.
