The Emancipation of O.O.O.
mixed media installation and performance
With The Emancipation of O.O.O. J&K present us with an object theatre, in which they discover a society of things that exist beyond human categorisation. Objects share their memories with us, revolt against the human reign, philosophise, take a piss and simply slip out of our grasp. Barriers between living and non-living forms are dissolving. Throughout the performance the stage slowly emerges, is transformed and animated by the artists and finally remains as an installation of objects for the exhibition period.
The Emancipation of O.O.O. was shown as part of the artist theatre festival HUBRIS curated by Christian Schmidt-Rasmussen shown at Overgaden – Institut of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen during May 2017. The script for the performance is written in collaboration with Jonathan Bonnici.
