Mere Phantoms: Garden of Earthly Delights Performance
$10.00 / Sold Out
CSA Space, grunt gallery and PUSH Festival are pleased to co-present a performance by the Montreal-based duo, Mere Phantoms, entitled Garden of Earthly Delights. Composer: Chris Carrière.
Inspired by the Hieronymus Bosch painting of the same name, this is an experience of the city as rendered in darkness. In this immersive journey, viewers are guided by shadow projections and sound cues to bring a procession of dreamscapes to life. With specially designed light wands, spectators move from a lush tropical jungle to an urban one encountering characters, at times absurd and fantastical amidst fight, flight and displacement.
The cityscape appears as shadows on the wall, becoming an abstraction even as its physical essence is laid bare. Mere Phantoms takes 16th century notions of heaven and hell and welds them to a modern inquiry. Is this fantasy or nightmare? Decide for yourself as you experience the magic via light and paper. This is illusionism at its finest—refined down to a beautiful binary of black and white.
