Lília Mestre

Mount Tackle
Project by Heike Langsdorf in co-creation with Lilia Mestre
Barely using spoken language, this piece enables multiple ‘readings’ of a situation. This openness, to some scary and uncomfortable, to others relieving and inspiring, invites to think whilst being immersed in stuff and junk (no garbage!). People can take literally their time and make themselves comfortable. There is no ideal spot, and therefore everybody is invited to try different perspectives; to walk around, scan and discover or just hang out. Both performers and public registrate, decipher and is tempted to interpret the surrounding landscape— both as onlooker and possible mobiliser of things.
