A set of yellow boots, volunteers and a trance-dream of rising waters. Unconscious engineers emerge with revelations of how to cope with king tides and emperor tides. A project started in the year 2000 at the Università Iuav di Venezia comes together again, this time with more urgency and clarity of purpose. Seeking solutions from the deepest recesses of mind, part nightmare therapy, part workshop, part aquatic catharsis, the performance will be conducted by Marcos Lutyens. Means of Flotation relates to a concurrent exhibition at the Alberta Pane Gallery in Venice called Island Ark.
