MARIA DOULGERI

ONE MORE PAINTING

About the performance

“I do not make paintings; it is as if I live within them.”

Jannis Kounellis

A Solo Performance. A Woman. A workshop as a visual landscape.

A project that deals with the creative process, in which the performer serves as both creator and final product, thus creating a painting that moves in perpetuity.

In this process where the body molds while being molded, agony, empathy and devotion alternate and co-exist somewhere between order and chaos.

And so “one more painting” is born.

One more effort.

One more story.
