The exhibition transformes the concept of the Island into a tool for examining the limits and status of the museum and of performance art in the context of contemporary reality. The seven performance artists that participate in the exhibition took over various museum spaces, while simultaneously sharing their ongoing work processes. Viewers, who were welcomed at the museum during its regular opening hours, were invited to explore concerns including the museum’s role as an isolated cultural “lighthouse” or ivory tower; the limits of the museum as an institution; and the status of the artwork (if artworks indeed emerge out of the work process) as an organic, vital and unique entity.
