  1. ‘Zeno’s third paradox was about an arrow in flight. But, seeing as it stands still in any one instant of time, it remains motionless. The arrow flies forward, but does not move. It pierces the heart, and from this poems are born.’ So said Vladimir Gandelsman. This piece has arisen from multiple arrows that have pierced us. The arrow of Rīgas Laiks. The arrow of Wagner. The arrow of Auznieks. And all the other conscious and unconscious arrows of life. 

     

    ZRwhdZ is like a formula. It is like the golden ratio through which you can approach perfection in live art. Deciphering the abbreviation you get the phrase “Zum Raum wird hier die Zeit” (“Here, time becomes space”) from the libretto of Richard Wagner’s last opera Parsifal. Time and space become the frame, the legs on which the scenography moves.

     

    A few years ago on a trip, we got a pocket-sized musical box which can fit into the palm of a hand. But a person can also fit into the music box. Something can come into existence in the space between contradiction and ambivalence, which contains childishness and its loss, or its retrieval. Art poses questions, because in creating art you have to discover the world anew.
