SUDDENLY WE WERE ALL ALONE

Shadur's new work follows the journey of several characters through an ever-changing, shapeshifting, in nite space.
Much like an archeological process – through scraping, isolation, exposure and concealment - Shadur attempts to uncover the origins of steps, to read the physical score of a society coming into being and to examine a community's movement in space and time. The act of stripping a movement from its origins and contexts leaves it exposed, vulnerable, anticipating reconstruction.
The group intertwines within itself, creating a landscape while at the same time immersing in it, breaking through a collection of lithographs that moves forward in time, thus immortalizing itself. Trapped, yet constantly in motion, the characters are slowly stripped of their collective and historical state and unravel into minor, personal movement.
