Art Contest

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.
