  • SOPHIE HILL, BOW ARTS, UK
    "Inspired by Aeschylus’ theatre play Iketides (Suppliant Women), which poses a dilemma between saving the Foreigner and maintaining the safety of the Native, Drivas’ work is masterful in its playful confusion and deliberate boundary-playing."

    "Une grande scène cinématographique digne de L’Aveu de Costa-Gavras – sous forme de réunion en urgence d’un conseil d’administration en colère formé par les savants, les directeurs de recherche et les directeurs financiers – fait avorter cette aventure scientifique."

  • ELLEN WAGNER, FAUST KULTUR, DE
    "Die Poesie, die das dem Forschungsgegenstand liebevoll zugeneigt erscheinende wissenschaftliche Sprechen in Drivas’ Installation stellenweise entfaltet, öffnet Freiräume, in denen sich die Argumentationen um die mögliche Weiterführung des Experiments auch und vor allem in andere Richtungen als bloß die der Naturwissenschaften weiterdenken lassen."

  • COLLEEN BARRY, ASSOCIATED PRESS, USA
    "Drivas wants visitors to slow down and let the allegorical meaning of the experiment sink in. Anyone who rushes through his installation will miss Charlotte Rampling’s cameo, and possibly even catharsis."
