SALON #6 RE-ENACTMENT/CANON
14/12/2019 - 16:00 @ NADINE 
NIEUWBRUG 3, 1000 BRUSSEL

Re-Enactment/Canon’ is the topic of the last iteration of Salon in 2019 looking for the questioning of the (geo)politics of artistic programmation, a theme searching to understand what gets to be re-presented, by whom and how.

Elen Braga uses performance as a medium to investigate issues related to the individual subject’s strength, ambition and resilience. She is currently completing “Os 12 trabalhos” [The twelve labors], a series of performances tackling natural forces, all referencing the Greek myth of Hercules. Conceived, performed and recorded in video, photography, objects and diagrams, the focus is on the useless, absurd nature of these endeavors: allegories of insistence against the odds, confrontations against failure.
