119-minute project. The international congress at the Whitechapel Gallery by Renata Jaworska

Renata Jaworska’s:  „119-minute circle“ project also called „a dancing congress“ was held on 14th of march 2010 at Whitechapel Gallery in London. She invited representatives of sixteen different nations who gathered at the „The Nature of the Beast“ – international, round table to form a live human exhibition. The piece was instigated in front of an installation by Goshka Macugathat explored Pablo Picasso’s Guernica exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1939, thus framing it with a reader-centric production of material exploring connections between art, propaganda and war. Each participant recited their national anthem individually followed by all reciting them again simultaneously creating a cacophony of dissonance, miscommunication and aural power struggles.
The conference aimed to emphasize the rules of cultural identity whilst highlighting the sense of duty, individualism, thought process and behavior of each individual. Through this project Renata commented contemporary times, particularly the lack of communication among people and the feeling of loss experienced by many.

Renata Jaworska educated at the Art Academy of Düsseldorf, has exhibited extensively throughout Poland, Germany, USA and England since 2002 and focuses on collaborative performance and painting. Most recently she has collaborated with twenty American and fourteen German artists in Lake Constance, Germany for the project Salem2Salem, a pilot scheme of Bodensee Kulturraum that encourages interdisciplinary art production and takes its inspiration from the Bauhaus movement.

Россия – священная наша держава,

Россия – любимая наша страна.
Могучая воля, великая слава —
Твоё достоянье на все времена!

Припев
Славься, Отечество наше свободное,
Братских народов союз вековой,
Предками данная мудрость народная!
Славься, страна! Мы гордимся тобой!

От южных морей до полярного края
Раскинулись наши леса и поля.
Одна ты на свете! Одна ты такая —
Хранимая Богом родная земля!

Припев

Широкий простор для мечты и для жизни
Грядущие нам открывают года.
Нам силу даёт наша верность Отчизне.
Так было, так есть и так будет всегда!

Припев

千代に
八千代に
細石の
巌となりて

La Bandera de España

Gloria, gloria, corona de la Patria,
soberana luz
que es oro en tu pendón.

Vida, vida, futuro de la Patria,
que en tus ojos es
abierto corazón.

Púrpura y oro: bandera inmortal;
en tus colores, juntas, carne y alma están.

Púrpura y oro: querer y lograr;
Tú eres, bandera, el signo del humano afán.

Gloria, gloria, corona de la Patria,
soberana luz
que es oro en tu pendón.

Púrpura y oro: bandera immortal;
en tus colores, juntas, carne y alma están
