Presentation N°1 (Cynthia 466)
Lena Appel

A piece for three characters in suspension
examines the connection of three bodies that technically never met
but is created by the unity of an image -
the stage.
“The fusion of desires” is acted out
on the platform of three figures:

1 Claude Cahun & Marcel Moore
2 Cindy Sherman

Presentation N°1 (Cynthia 466) intersects the work and methodology of photography and theater. In it, the transience and eventual fictionality of the performative act is juxtaposed with the petrification and supposed transparency of photography. The piece is focussed on the fictionalised relation between the three artist:s who blur the boundaries between photography, performance and acting in their work: Claude Cahun & Marcel Moore as well as Cindy Sherman.
