Still Life With Blackcocks

Performance for the exhibition Bougeoise Leftovers at De Appel Art Center, 2013

An off-live piece for an art center in Amsterdam. The exhibition was articulated around a part of the collection of the Van Abbemuseum that his director tagged as bourgeoise leftovers. My proposal consisted in the reading of the astral chart of Arnout Colnot, one of the Dutch dead painters included in the show. The interpeter was describing the position of the planets in the sky at the moment that Colnot was born, speculating in the way that this affected his personality and his life. At the same time, he was making a choreography in the space based on the position of the planets having the public as the center of the sky map.
