Departing from the desire to virtually reconstruct the Russian most famous pyramid we dive into the complex web of material histories and appropriations. In our collaboration we seek the intersections and possible artistic bridging between sculpture and choreography. The monumentalism of forms that inhabit our collective memories and thrive through times become qualities to be reproduced and played with through dance, 3D sculpture and video art. In the creation of tangible ( sculpture) and ephemeral ( dance) objects, we want to blur well defined temporalities of historic(al) and artistic matters and speculate on the futurism of the Monumental. We explore the performative potential of shapes, carvings, and spatial relations in order to propose an inter-medial choreography that mobilizes the alive and the (un)dead.
