Angelos Skourtis, poetic performance
Poetic performance under the title:
“The Demoiselles d’Avignon often watched La Traviata”
As part of the opening of the exhibition "Process", visual artist Angelos Skourtis presented a poetic-visual performance in the Museum of Contemporary Art, on Friday, 20 December 2013.
The event consisted of brief poetic monologues written by the artist and referring to the relationship of ‘common women’, prostitutes, with society as a whole.
Skourtis talked about the physical and mental cruelty exerted on these women, their coercion and their struggle to exist, to live.
In this happening poetry meets the theatre, music, political commentary and our existential agony about the nightmarish world we allowed to creep upon us and which we now need to fight off.
