Performance at M – Museum Leuven for Playground, 2018
The Head of Megera is an enigmatic medieval sculpture in the M Collection. This giantess was part of the famous medieval processions in Leuven. For Playground, she is being activated by a museum selfie-junkie during a curated walk, speculating on the perspective of Megera. Both characters will dialogue with the old pieces in the collection and with actual and virtual visitors. With this the show addresses two types of audiences, the virtual and the actual. Re-M-Ommegang (Re-M-Parade) explores the relationships between the senses, spectatorship and old art today and then and between surface and critique, based on medieval folk heroes, satire, and caricature.
Research, concept and direction: Eleni Kamma; performance and script developed in collaboration with Shila Anaraki; performer Shila Anaraki.
