Gerrit Rietveld Academie Graduation Show, Amsterdam 2015

Ritual performed with: five Ministries (Love, Beauty, Equality, Freedom and Fun), a time keeper and the Oracle.

Music by Maarten Nauw and Laura A Dima

Guided by the principle that envisioning the future you want makes it more attainable, Utopia. The Initiation left visitors marked by the colors of the ideals we seek. The installation was a monument to everyday rituals and the performance invited the audience to be part of the work by letting the artist ritually apply make up on their faces.
