alex pirici | o | ongoingness

ongoingness as the capacity to persist when we encounter precarious moments, when endurance and frailty manifest themselves and carry us to go on against all odds.

Pirici speaks here of ‘ongoing action’ as a choice of a quiet determination to keep up with our endeavours, to allow us time to be present.

in periods like these, when we live in a permacrisis, how do we continue to uphold our responsibilities?

Alexandra Pirici is an artist with a background in dance and choreography who works undisciplined, across different mediums. she choreographs ongoing actions that fuse dance, sculpture, spoken word and music. her works deal with monumentality or the history of specific places and institutions in order to playfully tackle and transform existing hierarchies.
