Bloodshed Event presents Pataphor
NEXT, Art Chicago April 29- May 3
The second in a series of calculated situations rooted in social psychology and behavioral theory; the seven deadly sins incarnate.
Performed in an exaggerated and macabre game-show aesthetic, this interactive installation investigates zero-sum theory as it relates to pride, greed and envy.
Through a series of absurd feats of strength, wit and endurance, viewers-cum-participants will undergo a psychological re-valuation of symbols of victory.
*A pataphor is a semantic structure once removed from metaphor, to describe a separate world of assumptions two degrees from reality, abandoning the original context.
