Video, documented performance.PLUG ME IN!, 2022

“PLUG ME IN!” is a performance revolving around the theme of absurdism, the confrontation with the odd and the literal disconnection of the individual. Focusing on the notion of doing an action for no purpose and the reasoning behind its repetition, my practice highlights the light-hearted and comedic approach towards the existentialism of life. Intended to disrupt the ordinary, I push a visually ridiculous narrative to grab the audience’s attention and create those small stories you retell your friends and family. Encouraging these peculiar acts through performance produces a chance for us to consider the unusual, confront the absurd and question how seriously we take ourselves.
