My David, the 1st part of The Perfection Trilogy, presents the love and agony triangle between the artist, his creation and his muse. These three layers, almost identical but different in their essenc, are crossing each other and mingling between each other. Inspired by David of Michelangelo, My David, explores how the beauty ideal shapes the art; and how the art can define a different beauty ideal.
SODOM, the second chapter, is about the fragile line between truth and forgery, sex and violence in a world in which every person is the curator of their own life. The piece focuses on the relationship between the artist and the audience; The exposure on stage and the endless need for love and approval; no matter if you want to provoke or shake the audience. Our SODOM starts with the invitation to dive deep into the “truth” of Sodom, to the distinction that each one of us has about it.
The project started as part of a residence, HIER=JETZT 2019, Munich, Germany
