In Situ Trilogy

 


 

In Situ Trilogy is a trilogy of site-sensitive works which started in 2013 with In Situ, commissioned by Compass Commissions and conceived for Asylum, a disused chapel in Peckham (London).
 

The trilogy revolves around Nietzsche's "Three Metamorphoses" in which he presents a profound metaphor for human evolution and personal growth.

 

"Three metamorphoses of the spirit do I designate to you: how the spirit becometh a camel, the camel a lion, and the lion at last a child."

 

This trilogy explores the conflict of identity revealing the absurd of Man's desire to define himself though the self is multiple and indefinable in essence. This conflict can lead to states of despair, alienation and even a sense of madness.
 

Each piece of the trilogy uses the metaphore of the identity of the space to embody each of these states of consciousness.
 

In Situ, conceived for a disused chapel, inaugurated this triptych by materializing the first state, the state of Camel .

 

In 2016, Quests was commissioned by Greenwich Dance and designed for the Borough Hall of Greenwich and depicted the second state of consciousness, the state of the Lion.  

Bad Faith, currently in development, is the epilogue of Quests though not yet the final piece of the trilogy.  
Bad Faith is a trio for the stage which is inscribed in the trilogy by its relationship with Quests and sets the ground for a new trilogy inside the In Situ Trilogy
