A Big Bad Cold

The man who holds the 12kg bronze handkerchief, does not enact, he manifests the physical effort it takes to hold the weight and therefore encapsulates those instances when we mask our internal embarrassment by transferring the cause to the external factors such as stress, exhaustion, pain.

10 minute performance, tableaux vivant (no sound)
1 man
1 bronze handkerchief (12kg)

Miet Warlop presents a succession of theatrical vignettes, consisting of physical actions, sculptural props and scenic interventions that artfully cancel each other out on stage. Each scene reveals the immaterial processes that go into the work – using a plastic language. It turns them into a sculptural live event creating a temporary fantasy that begins to crumble in the moment of its completion.
