"There are delicate moments when one`s internal world rises to its full height and becomes visible. Somewhere between breathing in and out, or while blinking one`s eyes, the internal monologues one has constantly carried at the back of his head, become a story. Memories materialise into the objects one can touch and determine as to their forms. Smells and touches, arguably the least determinable sensory elements, turns into pulsating and rhythmical count-downs of the time left of one`s earthly presence. The body begins to think and speak of everything it has remembered, with one`s thoughts changing into grasping limbs that feel the skin.
The perspectives have turned…….
These are the moments one can sense in unusual states of daily life, or when one`s bulk has divide into its nightly dream. The interior changes into the exterior. The body becomes a room. A stage of memories. And the door is always left ajar. For there are rooms one can enter without knocking."
"When an invisible voice asks Iva Zupančič what she desires most, what she is looking forward to in human progress, she answers that it is people conquering the universe one day. We might think that these are glimpses of her life outside the theatre. A document. A diva in white, in a white room, with a white refrigerator containing white “sneakers”, memorial whiteness all around her. With an attitude, spiritedness, without pathos, with memories of a diva. The video will follow her as a parallel. Not chronologically, not in a banal explanatory way, so you know what you are watching. No. But as a subtle aesthetic image of a set of a document in accordance with her and with the spirit of her feeling, which seems to have no place in the whiteness. It will be brought out by the video and the excess."
