Arrows of Desire: Closing party and ritual


7pm - midnight, SOLD OUT

To mark the end of ‘Arrows of Desire’, the art show celebrating the agony and ecstasy of Saint Sebastian, we will take down the exhibition and host a closing party with poetry, music and a live performance.

Performing the rite of Sebastian will be chaosquiyr, a brilliant duo whose mesmerising movie installation Divina Mortis is on rotation during the exhibition run.

In “DIVINA MORTIS - Arrows of Desire Closure“ chaosquiyr says goodbye to Sebastian. The show is over. Time to pack up your puppets and resume your journey: Sebastian, Diocletian, Irene, all back in the suitcase; Ego, martyrdom, sanctification, back in the trunk; arrows and desires, back in the coffin.
