MARIANNA KAVALLIERATOS | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION
Filmed by Tokomburu
Production by Inkas Film Productions
Marianna Kavallieratos, dance artist (1969), Athens, Greece | Skin
Marianna Kavallieratos asks questions about the nature of appearances, masquerade and transformation in this work that concerns itself with the daily rituals that constantly change the outward aspect of our bodies. Surrounded by a pile of clothes, the artist dresses and undresses herself constantly, transforming herself over and again for eight hours, changing and reshaping herself to become a doll that tries on different characters and silent roles. She is seeking her “skin”, the real thing beneath all these attempts – intentional or otherwise – to distort our own selves that lead to a loss of identity and an acceptance of appearances.
Commissioned and produced by NEON + MAI, Marianna Kavallieratos, Skin, on the occasion of AS ONE, Benaki Museum, Athens, 10 March – 24 April 2016, Filming Tokomburu, Production Inkas Film Productions.
