(c)ovid´s metamorphoses – multimediaproject & catalogue

I am pleased to be part of the monumental and international multimedia network project (c)ovid’s metamorphoses”, which was created in the difficult times of the Covid pandemic, published as a large catalogue plus 7 DVDs & audio CDs by Meakusma.

Curated by Lasse Marc Riek and Bernd Herzogenrath, numerous artists from a wide ranghackedepicciotto support March 11th 2023hackedepicciotto support March 11th 2023e of disciplines have explored Ovid’s Metamorphoses, including such prominent figures as Lee Scratch Perry. The basic idea is transformation in connection with a creative “infection” and equally creative “protective measures”. The idea was to reflect ideas of injury, illness and healing. My starting point was the myth of Meleager & Althaea from the 8th book of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, which I altered with minimal means. My retelling then underwent numerous transformations in sound, image and film. Catalogue: Metamorphosis xviii, p. 165 – 172 with Sebastian Scherer, Echo Ho, Simon Whetham, Sven Janke, Eva Pöpplein and Evangelos Papadopoulos.
