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.
