Passage delux

Andreja Rauch

I’m leaving the station and I’m returning to the station. Here we meet again and say good-bye. If I think how many encounters and partings happen in this space, it seems that the crowd of emotions is collecting like the waving of a slow crawling caterpillar. Probably it assembles the schedules of the arrivals and departures of the trains, that happened from just before to long before now.Like the flyers for the concerts that already happened stay and need to be taken off so there will be space to advertise new ones, in the same way this emotionally charged space could be swept clean of things, from little notes to big posters.  


Premiere: 29/9/2006
Železniška postaja, Ljubljana

Each for ourselves we are cleaning our memory. It is like a home, that I need to live in, that I can go from and return to. And that I can travel the journey. In between, time passes and the journey changes my perception and understanding of home. While working on this project PD I noticed that some people don’t travel anywhere. Perhaps they have no home, and have nowhere to go, but at the same time they are always on the way somewhere. Many times, I question about the randomness of encounters that happen to us, because it is noticeable sometimes that behind hide our schedules, time tables of perception. The meeting I named PD, is hardly a coincidence. PD, even though placed in a quotidian space where the flow of people is highest, transmits poetics with everyone who kindly and curiously accepted invitation to where culture and art meet and connect people sociably, which leaves a smile and contentment. At the same time it is about documenting the time that is happening now, and in future a document like this will have an important role as a reporter about people of a certain place-city.

How beautiful and at the same time hard to accept is the evasiveness and whimsicality of unpredictability which bring us to the stations through unexpected paths. Encounters at the stations and on the journeys make my path bearable and even pleasant. It’s why I later remember better those bits of the journey.
