The Place of the Grave

A girl was playing in the house and suddenly the Grave came to the girl and said: »Little girl, little girl, you can play here but you have to close the doors and windows.« The girl said yes and continued to play. Then the Grave came a second time and said: »Little girl, little girl, you can play here but you have to remember to close the doors and windows.« The girl said yes again and continued to play. For the third time the Grave came to the girl and said: »Little girl, little girl, you can play here but you have to remember to close the doors and windows.« The girl said yes, and continued to play. 

This lecture explores notions of disappearance, expectancy, and the duty of the artist to believe in their own work. Somewhere between the deeply engaging and the uncomfortably real, Krõõt’s delivery is that of the stand-offish stand-up tragi-comic.
