ROYAL GAZPACHO

ROYAL GAZPACHO (2015)

A slow, deliberate orchestration around a table. We’ll see the ingredients for a gazpacho transfigured into dramatic images: A single bulb of garlic, still, unmoving. Hanging pouches, red. A dancing mass of tempestuous liquid.

Shakespeare’s King Lear (1606) is the underlaying partition of Royal Gazpacho. A slow, deliberate orchestration of a tragedy around a table. In a space evocative of a refined butchery, we’ll see the transfiguration of ingredients for a tomato soup into dramatic images: A single bulb of garlic, still, unmoving. Hanging pouches of red. A dancing mass of tempestuous liquid.
