Still life


Visual performance inspired by the work of René Magritte. Slightly naive, very unlikely and sometimes ridiculous images reflecting our (non-)working minds.

You will become part of this world created specifically for someone who needs to hide from his destiny. A world in which reality is only a shadow of the mind. The playfulness of a child mixes with the madness of an adult and this madness becomes a dream. Surrealistic performance about the fragile shell of the soul, our inner child, and denial of reality.

“If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream.”
