Go Forth

April 26, 2019
Bing Studio

Maria Baranova

Go Forth draws inspiration from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, a text originally intended to provide the deceased with a blueprint to the afterlife. Incorporating analog projections, chanting, and dance, the work animates a series of burial rituals. The audience enters through a photographic installation that provides an initiation into the mythological landscape of the work. The performance proposes burial not as erasure but as offering restitution that creates space for the presence of the absent, the longed for and the imagined. Conceived and performed by Kaneza Schaal.
