The Turned Out Pocket: Cento modi per morire/A Hundred Ways To Die – Dragana Sapanjoš

13.6.2020. in 11h, Port of Rijeka

Marine polyphony in the Port of Rijeka.

As part of the Fiumanka sailing regatta, the artist, in collaboration with the owners of ships anchored in the port of Rijeka, will realise a polyphony of sounds – from the ships’ horns to the sounds of sea engines of various boats, trailers, sailboats and fishing boats. While evoking the now bygone times of prosperity on the one hand, through the ships’ murmur of the once busy and fast-paced Rijeka Port, on the other hand, it is a reminder of the sounds of ships’ horns announcing the search for vessels carrying refugees across the Mediterranean. The artist will transform these negative associative triggers, into a symphony through a collective performance, considering the power of the human mind to forget even the greatest tragedy in a split second and turn it into a wonderful event.
