Miet Warlop enchants the audience in her performances with living sculptures, animated objects and chemical reactions that continuously erupt.

About

HAU recently presented “Dragging the Bone” (2015), in which the artist immersed her entire body in plaster. While refering to the aesthetics of art exhibitions, “Fruits of Labor” represents a mixture of performance, concert and visual art, a revue of songs and dances around a constantly transforming, awkwardly oversized white cube. “Let’s try to go beyond, leaning over the balcony of language. / What else can be an alternative to plain reality than trying to grasp the soul of things?” Miet Warlop questions. The audience is plunged into a glowing movement of light, colours, sounds, emotions, at some point the whole space becomes an instrument. For all its lunacy, this psychoactive parade of objects is also an artistic reaction to a world that is falling apart. A reaction that positions its own glittering chaos against control and restriction.
