From the fall of 2020 to the summer of 2022, the author of the work visited apartment 34 on Gustav Adoff Street in Rakvere. From these visits, works reflecting the relationship between a specific space and the body were born: “Kõik loeb/ the Reader”, “Korter 34” and “Where are you?”. The final work of the apartment series “Where are you?” was open from the 6th to the 9th of July 2022 in the same apartment in Rakvere in the program of international performing arts festival Baltoscandal.

Liis: ‘I came here a few years ago just to be. I had visited this place before, but this time I came to a place where there was no function; people had left. This space simply was, holding things and time without expectations or demands. It fascinated me. I needed it. That’s how we started being together. The space began to guide and mirror me, and I started to notice and follow. Everything that is here has already been and is yet to come. Now you are here too. Welcome!’
