Counting in Greek "1, 2, 3", like a clock, Virginia Mastrogiannaki attempts to mimic an analogue machine - a tool for calculating time. At ANNAELLEGALLERY, Virginia, the human clock, will keep time without pause during the gallery's opening hours over the course of four days. The performance, Jargon, runs from the 23rd to the 26th of February 2017. The performance, originally commissioned by NEON and MAI (Marina Abramovic Institute) for As One (Benaki Museum, Athens, March 10-April 24, 2016), challenges Virginia to remain focused on every minute measuring time as it passes, testing the limits of body and mind. However, because mistakes are unavoidable, throughout the performance, she scribbles down numbers on pieces of glass board or paper in order to keep the mind focused.
