MATCH 2 is a duet that treats the relationship like a sport and emotion like a score. Two players try to experience the fundamentals of the competition itself, but the rules change all the time. Adapt or die! Be productive or die!! These two players are each other’s mirror image, discovering their differences as they try to achieve the same image, revealing the most subtle mechanisms of competition in the process: constant evaluation, constant judgment, comparison, and the envy that comes between people.
Vilma Pitrinaite and Sabina Scarlat question competition, an essential characteristic of capitalism, now exacerbated and discretely renamed ‘neo-liberalism’, which determines not only the market economy - its playground - but also each of our daily lives, our work and our relationships, whether social or intimate.
