Hourglass, 2017 - Johanna Van Overmeir
17-03-2018 17:00
Johanna van Overmeir (b. 1983, Duffel) produces quirky performances, video art and installations, in which she often acts as a human medium.

Live action / performance:
On 17 March, Johanna Van Overmeir will give a performance in this installation, whereby she will immerse herself in the petri dish. In so doing, she refers to a figure in the seminal painting, “The Raft of the Medusa”. Unlike the other passengers on the raft, who are all looking towards the horizon, this shipwreck victim lies on the raft, his head submerged in the water. He prefers another world and abandons himself to the sea.
