Her „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 Macuga that 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.
