Eleni Kamma presents works in the group exhibition 'Persona Everywhere'.
About the exhibition
Persona Everyware brings together the works of eight artists and artist twosomes around issues to do with the common good, anonymity, and 'depersonification’ in the digital age: videos, installations, and drawings will all be on view in the rooms at the Hôtel Rochegude. Eleni Kamma shows four drawings and the work-in-progress video 'Migratie'.
In the summer of 2018 Greek-Cypriot artist Eleni Kamma commissioned three screenwriters to write sketches on seven community-related concepts that create disagreement: Democracy, Prosperity, Solidarity, Europe, Languages, Migration, Pluralism. Kamma borrowed these from BELvue Museum, which uses them to reflect on Belgium and Belgian society. In the deep Belgian forest surrounding Eben-Ezer Tower, humans and puppets come together to tell a joke on Migration by Flemish writer, director and performing artist Pieter De Buysser. A volunteer, a politician, an ex-refugee, a journalist, animal-headed refugees and laughing happy people co-exist and narrate the joke.
