Fictive Days

(2008)

WHAT IS THE MAIN IDEA OF THE PROJECT AND WHO IS THE TARGET GROUP?

The project arises from the premise that the conscious aspects of affective relations happen between imagined identities and that the human ability to create fiction is one of its defining characteristics. Through its live cultivation of personal relationships, Fictive Days aims to investigate both the clich├ęs of cinema and those of our everyday lives. 'Fiction' is here defined as an imaginative form of narrative, behaviour or communication that is not entirely based upon facts.

Fictive Days is a project developed by Peruvian artist Sergio Zevallos.

WHAT DOES THE PROJECT INCLUDE?

Eight artists/researchers were invited to Berlin to live and work closely together for two weeks in one large apartment. During the course of the project, everyday functions were arranged solely on the structures of famous film scenes involving the performing characters. These scenes were realised by the group and then developed further following the individual intentions, emotional reactions and practical needs of each performer.

It was presented during the New Life Berlin Contemporary Art Festival in June 2008.
