Kamen Stoyanov

Greetings

performance, Austrian Cultural Forum Budapest, video, 15:55 min, 2015

 

The performance is based on the Greetings on the Murmurs of Earth, the Voyager Interstellar Record from 1977.

The artist is starting with performing in a golden robe the greetings from Voyager Interstellar Record to the audience. In the second part he is performing the speech of Kurt Waldheim in his role as a secretary general of UN from the same record in a other rather militant costume which comes up under the golden robe. The piece ends with the Beethoven Quartet Cavatina performed by Kammeramusicquartetts Presto which underlines the tragic awareness of the „Greetings“ concerning the past and the present.
