Over the last few years, Elli Kuru┼č has been working on a series of sculptures, which are now being shown publicly for the first time in an exhibition at the Kulturf├Ârderverein Schaddelm├╝hle
. The ceramic sculptures are reminiscent of human bodies, but their shape points to an inexplicable, monstrous split. The exhibition in Schaddelm├╝hle presents the ceramics like archaeological finds of a lost culture. They can be discovered piece by piece via a wild meadow parcour.
As part of the exhibition, Asya Volodina has developed a larp (=live action role play, a kind of immersive performance). On three dates, interested people could participate. In the Larp, the sculptures act as proxies that are activated by the participants. In the common play the ceramic bodies are touched, used and put in relation to the own body. The format of the (role) play allows emotional immersion into an alternative reality, which makes other rules, other forms of perception and cooperation possible. The participants are agents in a moment of co-creation and their traces of action become part of the exhibition.
