A glass mirror cup is placed on an empty surface; she carefully lifts it until she sees her faces’ reflection on the bottom of the cup. A moment of consideration, a moment of break. Suddenly she lifts the mirror cup to her lips and takes a sip of water from the glass. Drinking the image of herself, the object and the subject of this simple act becomes one, an infinite loop, like the one of the moebius bands’ surface begins.

 

Maria Lalou’s performative exhibition a spect departs from the presence of a peculiar reflective object, a seminar performance and it’s script. What is a stage without performers and how a work can be activated in the absence of ‘actors’? Who are the actors anyway? a spect is a quest into the theatre of consciousness where visitors become viewers of sights and where memory suggests future experience. 

The presented book [theatro] is a rhythmical reading experience, a 5,5 meters long transcript of a seminar performance, reflecting it’s original pulse and duration. With introduction by Alena Alexandrova.

The staged event I AM A ’Φ’  on the 27th of June is a performance that attempts to trigger imagination of a particular existential state via constant tension and recurrence. The two characters of [theatro], A and B, are performed by a single person (language: English and Greek). Performed by Tania Theodorou and Maria Lalou.

Opening: 11 July, 2015
Exhibition continues: 12 July – 3 August, 2015

 

Based on her performance at the Banff Center in Canada 21 Objects of Hesitation (2013), over the past few years visual artist Helen Cho explored the materiality of ceramics in relation to her experience of ‘diaspora’ and Korean roots. Especially for the exhibition at Onomatopee she delved into the core material of the earth, clay, to contemplate and explore the notions of moving closer to oneself and one’s external world. Cho re-imagines herself with a series of new objects, videos, photographs, and a performance that will offer an insight into the symbolic value and of the poetics of art object making today.

Helen Cho is a Korean-Canadian artist based in Toronto, Canada. Her artistic practice consists out of various mediums such as poetry, sculpture, drawing, video and performance. Cho shows, both in the physical sense and the manifestation of that, a poignant desire for “object” and “image” making. Highly aware of the complexity of representation of objects, their material, and the prosaic yet seductive qualities of mass-produced materiality gain her attention. Cho’s artistic practice contemplates modest gestures and rituals. Narratives are suggested in seemingly trivial artefacts, locations and transactions of everyday life making her work subtle, sensitive yet outspokenly ‘necessary’. Her current project explores the approachability and allusiveness of ceramics that exists between arts and craft, but also in the artistic, the domestic, and between sheer object- making and performance. Cho researches the traditional medium on its merits to past and future as the terracotta material shows both strength and fragility.
