Art Event Overview:


    In the public performance project macghillie_just a void, urban sites are visited by a figure, clad in a camouflage suit, who reveals neither the traits of an individual, or even of a person. The so-called Ghillie Suit was originally invented in the nineteenth century for hunting, and has been
    used as camouflage for soldiers in military conflicts ever since the First World War. Its camouflage results in the anonymization and the neutralization of the person who wears it in public. The figure oscillates between the hyperpresence of a mask, and visual redundancy. It traverses the modern urban environment in which conspicuity holds ambivalent currency, wavering between cumbersome affirmation and visual arbitrariness.
