Table de Chuchotement
Quatre festivités uniques célébrées par des personnes de cultures distinctes sont rassemblées dans une scène archétypique de la congrégation. Les visiteurs qui s’approchent d’une table ronde remplie de plats vides découvrent que ceux-ci racontent en fait des histoires personnelles sur la signification symbolique de la nourriture et des rituels. Écrites par un écrivain, ces histoires sont basées sur des interviews et des recherches menées pour cette pièce. Le contenu change en fonction des positions des plats et de leur distance par rapport aux autres. Similitudes et particularités des différentes cérémonies culinaires explorées de manière ludique et divertissante. En changeant les constellations de table, les visiteurs révèlent de plus en plus d’histoires et s’intègrent à un spectacle participatif.

REMTY ELENGA

ALL THE SCREENS IN MY HOUSE

Her nearby environment and the observations she makes in it form the starting point for Remty Elenga (Los Angeles, 1987) in creating new work. In doing this she likes to explore how we give meaning to various layers of reality, looking for contradictions in time and place, the visible and invisible, between what is real and what isn`t.

Frederik Heyman

CEREMONIAL FORMALITY
Frederik Heyman’s work is a balancing act incorporating multiple media – including video, installations and photogaphy – often in a digitally altered environment. In his work, Heyman explores memory and duration, using photogrammetry and 3D scanning to depict and represent the passage of time. The hallmarks of Heyman’s work are mechanical and technological: wires, wheels, scrolling LED marquees, metal frames, clamps, industrial lights, screens and cameras. Bodies–as opposed to humans–are subject to unusual dynamics with these technological trappings. In Ceremonial Formality (2020) a contortionist is encased in a metal cage while a spectator, hooked up to wires, looks on.
