Becoming Sculptures

For his installation The Temple, Ersan Mondtag conceived the performance Becoming Sculptures, which premiered at the opening of Nature and State.

Both works have been commissioned by Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. Different tracks of storytelling on human existence and alien forms are followed by an accumulation of acts, events, and discussions; all taking place in a humid temple architecture, a proposal for a temporary museum by Mondtag, that will dry out over time. The temple refers to ancient structures, where social, private, political and transcendent fields intersected.
