Imperceptible Departure

a three day event in a museum

5th -7th March 2015
Museum of Modern Art Ljubljana (Moderna galerija Ljubljana)

Imperceptible Departure is a  three-day event that starts and ends in an empty space.

An empty space is a white canvas for choreography. Full of possibilities. Open and ready for the initial moment.

The choreography will develop through the composition of figures in space; through the changing shapes of and relationships between an empty space and the figures in that space.

The choreography will unfold in an exhibitive time and is created with all the figures in space; with us and with you.


Our movement creates spaces full of shapes that will, on the second day, be translated into other medias; and on the third day, used in an hour-long exhibition called Unauthorised*.

Throughout the three days, the Museum is a place of meetings for various groups of people; a place where one can enjoy space and time.

The format of those meetings combines elements of artistic activities, such as performance, exhibition, workshop, talks…with a desire to open part of our creative process to everyone; for everyone to bring their own vision.

The three-day event will, on each of its days, be composed of different scores that are executed with a previously arranged group of people.

We begin with a performance-based event that will exist in an exhibition time-frame and we conclude with an exhibition that will exist in a performance-based time.

Each day of this 3-day event is open to the general public.


* Unauthorised is one of collective projects of collective Federacija. The basic score, though in its adapted version was developed in the third day of the project Imperceptible departure. The exhibition, which happens on the third day is named by a collective project Unauthorised.
