The acclaimed visual artist reconstitutes and reactivates her work, which was first presented in 2006 at the Panic Room exhibition of the DESTE Foundation. She offers the body as an archive of memory and experience, negotiating the relationship between politics and movement.

During the performance, the sound of the artist’s voice echoes extracts from her teenage diaries and from the book Call by the political group Invisible Committee, forming an internal dialogue that contributes to the soundscape of the action, which is constantly repeated. A distant dance that seems to be never-ending.

[..This is a party
A collection of places, infrastructures, dreams,
nightmares, bodies, thoughts and desires. Desires
that circulate among us among the places we
move and meet.
What about, the formation of sensibility as a force.
The sensual of the sensitive
Of the sensitive sensuality
The relationship as no way meeting from the
accident to the no resisting full ending
Or starting again and again..]

About Mystery 151 A Rave Down Below:

Mystery 151 A Rave Down Below explores the political dynamics of the body in motion from a simultaneously geological and cultural underground point of departure. Alchemical wanderings from the historical past towards mythology and a post-industrial present culminate in a delirious dance. Inebriation, intoxication, revulsion, euphoria, release, vent, and ascent; a circular path from the body to the ground and back again. The exhibition’s narrative unfolds through the myths and history of the city of Elefsina and its Mysteries, with dance serving as a means of climax, a sacred ritual, and a method for exploring concepts of death and loss. In Mystery 151 A Rave Down Below, we witness dance and its affinity with the ailing body or even itself as illness and therapy, dance in a state of crisis, as exhaustion that brings pleasure displacing social exhaustion, as escape and counteraction.
