Avenirologic Hymns are critical contemporary prayers to the deities of roaming futures, inspired and informed by the ancient Homeric and Orphic hymns. The hymns were written by Denis Maksimov to be performed towards the paintings of Florent Frizet, devoted to the martyrs in the Ancient Greek mythology.
Dedications to Orpheus, Mnemosyne, Icarus, Andromeda, Prometheus and Dionysos will be performed in the exhibition space, activating Frizet’s paintings and turning the event into a ritual of calling upon the alternative futures in which the everlasting presence of patriarchy, toxic masculinity, short-sightedness and privilege are fundamentally challenged. The public is invited to join the performer in the call for the roaming futures, forming a political temple choir.
Performance will start at 21:30 precisely.
