THE PURIFICATION OF MANKIND

Installation & Purification Ball for the Futurosity Festival // Opening weekend UBIK Theater // WORM Rotterdam

UBIK: Futurosity // An Intergalactic Scifi Bizarro Festival at WORM/UBIK, Rotterdam. Literary symposiums, film binges, poetry pop-ups, performance art, parties and music galore!

HipSick got invited to create an installation in which this 4 day festival could take place. On 1 of these days we took over…for hours. And hours. We got stuck. In a loop.

‘The Purification of Mankind’ is based on the future ideal of beauty. Research discovered the cleansing properties of the radioactive substance found in the Lilium Candidum nearby Chernobyl. Treatment will result in the ultimate socalled ‘White Look’.
