Urban legends, stories and rumours from KošiceUrte

Janus & Ruta Putramentaite present Personae Kasarne / Kulturpark Kosice, Slovakia Red Gallery London based artistic duo Urte Janus & Ruta Putramentaite, also known as Terrible Twins, has spent two months on the artist in residency program in Košice.

 

They were activelly working with the community, gathering the local stories, legends and rumours from all around Kosice and East Slovakia. The result of their effort is to be shown on their exhibition called Personae.

The Opening will be on 10th of June at 19:00 in the November pavilion, Kasárne/Kulturpark. Why Personae? The ancient Greeks used the term personae for masks, which were significant element of classic Greek theater.

The masks enabled an actor to appear in several different roles, thus preventing the audience from identifying the actor to one specific character. Time spent in Košice with it's stories, rumors and urban legends became a scenario to perform. The exhibition will last until 26th of June 2014 and will be opened from Tuesdays until Thursdays from 14:00 – 18:00. We are looking forward to meeting you there!

The residency of Terrible Twins was made possible thanks to the cooperation with Red Gallery in London. 10th June - 26th June
