“Ugo” is an five-hour long durational performance with two fresh trout on a white lined bed. In this performance, Suryodarmo moves slowly and deliberately with the fishes, hoping for Ikhthyes to come save us the way he saved Aphrodite and Eros from mortal danger. Scientific time dissolves in favour of the time of vital life as the fishes are shown to be alive and unreal in their role as Ikhthyes.

Suryodarmo draws from the flow of time as experienced, rather than scientific time, to let go of the mental abundance of civil society. In letting go of the confines of prior knowledge and constantly adapting it to real changes, information is integrated with experience. The expectations of history, politics and cultural identifications are dissolved in the air, which also holds the common consciousness and the unnamed catalyst of change and transformation, and inhaled again.
