AMNIOTIC ANTIDOTE



Reaktor, Vienna 22-24 october 2021


When the soil drinks the water
and the water eats the soil,
the dream of the nexus begins



The immersive performance installation Amniotic Antidote leads visitors into a distorted mirror of a ‘Kuranstalt‘. Intertwined into a surrealistic amalgam of science and emotion, the dystopic universe will explore questions of social alienation and of isolation and will search for possible cures. The iconographic leitmotif of water, that occurs in mythologies as well as in modern models of the world as the origin of life and medium for cleansing, is permeating the installation and is the centre of the collective ritual.
