The Last Messenger 2019

We presented the first version of this work in the basement of the SMAK friends, in the form of an intimate performance.

With “Messengers” I refer to the different people throughout history who have discovered something particularly special about being human and have tried to propagate this. The performance (which will later become a video work) shows one such Jesus figure who, with her last breath, tries to pass on what she has discovered to humanity. She then dies and becomes one of the lifeless human figures in the cave.
