THE ENVOY (2019)



Upon Us All Equally - Statements for the Future

National Dance Centre, Bucharest (RO)


Oh, the Humanity! – the reporter cried, witnessing the burning Hindenburg, only for the phrase to become an ironic meme. Time trumps all catastrophes. Still, what once seemed the mastery over the elements, the transfiguration of nature into environment, now appears as a series of catastrophes for an ever-impending apocalypse. For the history of culture and science is one with exploitation; just as the history of burning airships is one with monopoly over safe helium. But art is not science, neither is it annunciation. It is the rumination of the spheres into artworks. An obscure prophecy on your teleprompter.
