Cass lecturer Jacek Ludwig Scarso leads participatory experience at Tate Modern reflecting on the meaning of waiting.
Date: 14 December 2018
In Limbo is a week-long participatory experience at the Tate Exchange at the Tate Modern from 11-16 December reflecting on the meaning of waiting, led by Jacek Ludwig Scarso who leads the Theatre and Film course at The Cass. Leading up to this collaboration at the Tate, Jacek explored the theme with his students in The Waiting Room in The Cass Atrium on 4 and 5 December.
Speaking about the collaboration, Jacek said, "Collaborating with the Tate and involving my students in this project has been a dream come true. Between our live interventions and our unique VR journey, created in partnership with A-VR, I hope to give the public an unforgettable experience, making the theme of waiting, ironically, a truly exciting one!"
About In Limbo
Come and be impatient with us in a week-long experience on waiting. What are you waiting for?
Are you waiting for your next appointment, for your ideal partner, for social change or for life’s meaning to be revealed?
It’s time to be impatient with us. Enter our Limbo and ponder with us what we are there for and whether it is worth the wait. Waiting is more than an action. It is, in many ways, a condition of our lived experience. As the speed of the world at large increases, it is not so much that we spend more time waiting, but that we are obsessively conscious of it. The relentless drive forward makes our experience of the now one of anticipation and of slightly irritated longing.
Take a seat and share with us what you’re waiting for… or simply relax, and just wait.
Informal "waiting lounge chats" curated by Jacek Ludwig Scarso will take place at 4pm each day.
