DIMITRIS CHIMONAS | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION

Filmed by Tokomburu

Dimitris Chimonas, performance artist, (1993), Larnaca, Cyprus | Birthday

An excited young boy spends all day helping his mother prepare for his birthday party. When the time comes, he falls asleep and misses his moment. This boy, now grown, sits before you and behind a cake set with many candles. He sings “happy birthday” to himself, over and again, endlessly. Compulsive repetition creates the opportunity for a new outcome. This universal song, perhaps the best known in the world, becomes a personal elegy to a lost innocence.
Duration | 22-24 March
