Orientación / Orientation

Concept

-2012-

Orientación was realized on the occasion of the 1st Montevideo Biennial, El Gran Sur. For this event, Jankowski invited volunteers and press to gather in Plaza de los Inmigrantes, where he then blindfolded himself along with willing participants. He asked the journalists in attendance – both local and international – to safely guide the blindfolded group to the top of Montevideo mountain. The journalists performed a dual function, acting in their own roles, as well as the role of assisting the handicapped. Once the group reached the top, Jankowski asked those blindfolded to orientate themselves towards the east. The participants stayed in this position in quiet contemplation for ten minutes and then were lead back to their starting point at the bottom of the mountain.
