ALT_CPH 18, Over-Existing
A gathering of contemporary performance art in Copenhagen
25 May 2018 – 27 May 2018
Curated by : Anaïs Lepage

The Institut d'Esthétique (Beauty Parlor) is an artistic project founded by Emile Degorce-Dumas, Haily Grenet and Vincent Voillat, to question notions of estheticism within the environment of a beauty salon. The institute collaborates with artists from various backgrounds to examine the possibility of creating direct connections between the public and artworks.

For Alt_Cph, Anaïs Lepage, curator heiwata Paris, invites The Institut d'Esthétique to explore the notion of "Spiritual Materialism". Translated to a hyper-connected world eager for perfection and visibility as much as authenticity, "Spiritual Materialism" echoes the meeting of Eastern spiritualities and healing practices with Western researches for self improvement and happiness.

Artists Emile Degorce-Dumas, Christine Overvad Hansen, Sharon Van Overmeiren, Vincent Voillat, and Yarisal & Kublitz conceive a therapeutic, meditative and spiritual installation dealing with opposite desires. This performative environment is transformed over the days by ritual gestures and interactions with the public.
