executed by Roberta Lima and Can Gülcü



Please invite a group of friends and associates to join you in the following exercise.
Imagine a list of everyone you have ever loved. Who you loved is up to you – love might be fleeting, familial, platonic, past, or present. Invite each person on the list to visit the space for a drink on the opening night.

Mark the presence of those who are estranged and those who are unable to attend with an object somewhere in the gallery.

Set a table in the gallery with a single chair for each guest, and provide food and drink on the evening of the opening, accompanied by music of sentimental importance to these past relationships.

When the end of the evening is approaching, please ask each guest to state all they have ever wanted.
The event should be held the first night of the opening. Evidence of what happened should remain in the space.

Roberta Lima was born in 1974 in Manaus, Brazil.
After graduating with a degree in architecture in 2002, she moved to Europe where she now lives. In 2007, after earning a Master's degree in Fine Arts, she began her PhD studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. She is current Associate Researcher at GradCAM in Dublin.
Roberta focuses on her own body as theme for her work and uses various media, such as photographs, video and installations. Additionally that she investigates space and appropriates aspects of different places and contexts – from subculture to science, from popular media to historical reference and feminist theory – for producing art and starting discussions on the role of artist and viewer.

Can Gülcü , born 1976 in Bursa.
In his artistic practice Gülcü focuses mainly on the intersections of art and politics, power relations and social contexts, contemporary history and media mechanisms.
He lives and works in Vienna and teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Liz Glynn is an LA-based artist who explores the ambition of empire and the pleasure of ruin.

Her work has also been presented at venues including Acuna-Hansen Gallery (LA), John Connolly Presents (NYC), and Beta Level (Los Angeles), and will be included in an upcoming project at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She has attended residencies at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, Vermont Studio Center, and soon will travel to O’artoteca in Milan. Her work has been reviewed in Art Lies and the Los Angeles Times. She received her MFA from California Institute of the Arts, and her BA from Harvard College.
