›Marie and Cavok‹ by CMMC
Video by CMMC
Voice by Céline Mathieu
Text by Levi Lanser
Filmed at the Church of Sint-Rita in Harelbeke Belgium
Cinematography by Bas Blaasse
Originally commissioned by HART magazine
CMMC (Céline Mathieu and Myrthe van der Mark) performs self-invented cognitive constructions, always with a latent sense of humor. Their intensity is translated in very long performances (up to twelve hours), that have evolved over the seven years of their existence from working on quickly alternating emotions, text recitation and lengthly synchronized movements, to more stylized conceptual responses to the invitations they receive. The pieces often bring about an almost trance-like state in the performers.
CMMC performed in galleries and at art fairs internationally in Hamburg (P/ART), Manchester (Manchester Contemporary, Performance Program), Rotterdam (Wo Meine Sonne Scheint) and in Antwerp (M HKA, Trampoline gallery), Leuven (Museum M, Ithaka), Ghent (Kunstencentrum Vooruit, KIOSK), and Brussels (Poppositions).
