It Happened Here takes the fears and anxieties of a troubled world and localizes them at specific spots in the gallery. Aleks Slota embodies the contemporary existential dread and manifests it through solo performances done only for the space in which they happen.

The specific time of the action is gone, but the place remains. The ghost of the performance is only imagined through the written description. Through the disappearance the act becomes itself. I was here. I did it. It’s over. And yet, the document lives on into the future, and the performance lives through it.
