Rituals of Profanation

Leila El-Kayem, Denisse Vega de Santiago


Rituals of Profanation is a performance/multimedia installation which narrates the pilgrimages of the forms inhabiting The Land of Play and The Land of Fragmentation, towards the Profane Mountain. A non-sensic journey of forms in freed behaviour. A world in movement, where nothing is never the same. It is temporal, just as play and fragmentation occur. Pure means. The form itself is devoid of association, moulded, pieced into parts. The fragmentations are nothing more but an assemblage of forms that only make sense when together. Each form is a universe on their own, and part of a greater whole. Through the profanation of form, a fragmented, more inclusive and unstable account of history was created.
