Théo Mercier @Luma Westbau
August 26, 2022
Théo Mercier’s second phase of performances of his exhibition Dream Hunters hosted at Luma Westbau will take place between August 28th to 30rd as part of the Zürcher Theater Spektakel.
In his work Théo Mercier explores themes of abjection, psychoanalysis, and transcendence. His performances evolve towards a complex cross-disciplinary approach to include concerns around the function of memory, the production of subjectivity and the understanding of the material world and of human experience. The sand-sculpted beds and dogs and the performative activations which are integral to the work reflect on the way in which the intimate and the affective are invested with suspense, possibilities, tension, and desire.
Dream Hunters is open until September 4, 2022. Book your tickets for the performances part of the Zürcher Theater Spektakel.
