Lid Myths is a lyrical lecture performance sprouting a multidisciplinary field of research called Nuclear Semiotics, dedicated to creating and spreading myths with the aim of warning future generations about nuclear burial grounds. Traversing from the lids of those grounds, to the lid of a green breakfast smoothie, to the common idiom "put a lid on it" (to name some examples), the work explores how physical and metaphorical lids have shaped our collective storytelling. The performance deals with questions of knowledge distribution, the consequence of an inevitable break in mass transfer of information and the means of recharging language.
Performance: ca. 25 minutes
Sculpture: Plastic, gesso, plaster-bandage and acrylics
