Abstract

: The man who flew into space from his apartment
is inspired by an installation of the same name by the
Russian artist Ilya Kabakov. The performance draws on
notions of escape and makes a journey, like Kabakov,
between east and west, flying and falling, attempt and
failure. Using found slides and an old slide projector,
I present a slideshow for an empty gallery space to be
performed by a guest performer in front of an audience
of 10 people. The audience becomes the Ten Characters
in Kabakov’s work. The guest performer follows prerecorded
instructions on headphones that take him or
her on a journey into the unknown like the man who
flew into outer space. For this article, I consider the
curatorial role of the dramaturg and the dramaturgical
potential of the guest performer, exploring what it
means to curate the unrehearsed and the different and
complex politics implicit in sending someone on a
journey into the unknown.
