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.
