ErosAntEros at the Kiribati National Museum

The exhibit ‘Between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans’ proposes the images of their performance ‘Nympha, mane!’. In Bikenibeu, until December 3rd

Nympha, mane! was born as a performance part of an extensive research project about the nymph figure, related to man and his relationship with images, nature and man will to transform it.

It is a creative path followed by Davide Sacco and Agata Tomsic / ErosAntEros since September 2010 that has been involving different forms of expression, not only performing arts.

The research for a scenic representation, realized and tested during different stages during 2011, was supported by a philosophical and literary background study that expanded the boundaries of the project, giving life to some essays written and published by Agata Tomsic in next years.

The figure of the nymph represents man research on himself and his relation with natural elements such as water, wind, earth. In ErosAntEros' opinion, the metaphor of the nymph and how men have always tried to possess women body in ancient mythology as today, is a metaphor of how our patriarchal-capitalistic society destroys the planet every day without respecting the laws of nature and other living beings.

Now the photographs of the performance are part of the exhibition Between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, set at the Kiribati National Museum from October 3rd to December 3rd, 2019.

The exhibit, organized by Ergo Sum – Institute for contemporary Art and Culture of Ljubljana, is curated by Teraaiti Euta, Kautu Tabaka, Pelea Tehumu, and Nina Tepesospita and presents works of different genres and by different generations of artists from 11 countries: Austria, Croatia, Ecuador, Italy, Kiribati, Serbia, Slovenia, Sweden, Russia, Ukraine, United States of America.
