A POUND OF FLESH

A POUND OF FLESH by Lanfranco Aceti is sponsored by NeMe, a non profit organization based in Cyprus. The participatory performance will take place Thursday May 23, 2013, from 10:30 to 12:30 in the Limassol Municipal Market, Kanari st, Limassol. Performance and exhibition is curated by: Helene Black, Ozden Sahin and Jonathan Munro and coordinated by: Yiannis Colakides. MoCC and NeMe present A Pound of Flesh, a series of interventions and new artworks by Lanfranco Aceti. The artworks, installations, performances, videos and photographs, focus on the current social crisis and question relationships of power and money.

“They are like painters who cover the walls of sinking ships with still lifes

[sic.]. […] They produce their daubs undisturbed by the mighty or by the screams of the ravaged.” Adorno, Aesthetic Theory, 149-150.

A Pound of Flesh will see a performance taking place at the local market in Limassol in order to question the current European economic crisis and its social impact.

If the political abuse of the economically deprived of society is nothing else than a process of consumption and devouring, what is left for European citizens but to offer a pound of flesh?
