Delicate Instruments of Engagement

Ongoing Action

Part of the festival “The Mole Keeps on Digging. Animals / Politics / Performance"

Alexandra Pirici’s new work is a subjective selection of reconstructed images, situations, Internet memes – from the broadcast of Ceaușescu’s execution to Melania Trump and Michelle Obama’s similar public speeches. The ongoing perfomative action roams across the past, present and future and reflects on today’s porous boundaries between politics and pop culture. The audience can repeatedly choose different beginnings for a variety of narratives.
