2020, performance, custom made trolley, harmonica, dimensions variable
The performance L’Air, by Myrthe van der Mark, is based on the sculpture L’Air (1938) by Aristide Maillol. The performer sits down on a trolley. She takes the pose of the statue and directs air into a harmonica as she inhales and exhales. The seemingly light pose becomes a physical struggle, which is reflected in the body and the sound as the performance lasts for a few minutes.
Myrthe van der Mark was appointed first laureate at Art Contest 2020 with L’Air.
Presented every two hours at Art Brussels April 28th – May 1st, 2022.
