Rebecca Loewen: Just for Staying Together

 

Michelangelo Antonioni concludes his sketch for a film Just for Staying Together with a question: “I’ve always wondered whether it’s always right to provide an ending for stories, whether literary, theatrical, or cinematic. Once it’s been firmly channelized a story’s in danger of dying inwardly unless you give it another dimension, unless you let its tempo prolong itself in that external world where we, the protagonists of all stories, live. Where nothing’s conclusive.” Rebecca Loewen has constructed Just for Staying Together as a three-dimensional tableau that gives the story the dimension of space outside of time so that its tempo may prolong itself.
