For its fifth instalment, the nomadic project MOVE W I T H(OUT) stops in Belgrade where artist Ana Rodić will engage with both the city and the trunk performing ‘CITY nomad WI FI open AURA Foursquare on me’.
After Berlin, London, Rome and Venice, on Saturday 30th November the trunk will be hosted in Belgrade at Remont Gallery at 5.00pm, after having being carried along the planned route from the main Railway Station to the gallery.
Is it possible to call yourself a city nomad even if you only live in your (birth place) own city? Or do you have to move, or wait for those who are moving, to refresh and update you?
Using these questions as a starting point, Belgrade-based artist Ana Rodić investigates the contemporary nomadic condition in physical spaces and their movement to the digital sphere. Wearing a custom-designed dress and bespoke WIFI necklace, Ana will gather her ‘nomadic tribe’ by becoming a mobile source of free wi-fi and a FOURSQUARE checkpoint. She allows worldwide communications to move through her personal space and becomes a locus point for passersby, while crossing spaces of physical significance for people that live in Belgrade such as the Zeleni Venac Market. Her research on offline/online meaning of relationships and community will end with her performance as a totemic internet hub at Remont Gallery.
