Ants

Performance, 30min

2010

The composition is inspired by Jungian divide of a self into archetypes. In the performance a person is split into two and portrayed in the present and past tense. The red figure represents Fear, the white one with copper hair is The Child. In the past Fear protected The Child and lulled it to sleep. Now Fear sits aside, while the child peels the layer of The Unknown - the figure in blue. With this simple reading this performance is structured as a ritual. The actions are prescribed, the meaning is dictated. It is the simbolic realization of a mental structure that serves us a mystery of transformation.
