Read about it:
In 'Friday', a performative sound installation which spanned over 4 hours, the performers' actions were centered around a large wooden object, a sculpture which resembles a traditional millstone, with small speakers in it that play the high pitch sounds. Across from it is another wooden object, which is split into several platforms. This second sculpture, which resembles a stage or an Olympic podium, functions as a Subwoofer and plays the low frequencies in the piece's soundtrack. In this context of work in its most physical sense, trying to build a system where human energy is diverted into goods, this sculptural environment is both a totem and a place; The space is thus a site for lust, domination, restriction and destruction, both a playground and a war zone. The human body is stretched to its limits and is performed through different prisms that hectically locate it and relocate it within a liminal sphere between subject and object, abject and brand.
