Description

THE MANDALA PROJECT: VENICE - A Collateral Event during the 57th Venice Biennale. A Collective Mediation on Humanity in response to the global refugee crisis
Location: Zitelle, Giudecca, Venice/Italy

This performance series is based on both Eastern and Western concepts of the Mandala, and gives physical form to the human spirit, with the body as both literal location and esoteric conduit for attempts at a unified consciousness. It aims to collectively commemorate, celebrate, and heal, while offering a renewed sense of hope. This specific “boat performance” was performed in response to the global refugee crisis. Muller live plaster cast arms from all visitors and by-standers and mounted them vertically onto a beached boat. These outstretched arms are both a metaphor for hope, and a symbol for freedom and safety for those fleeing regimes of terror, injustice and wars.
