simulation of the installation of "Comus"





Inspired by my research into the Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet, and the Greek God Comus, I decided to explore the concept and experience of contemporary drunken revelry, and the eternal connection to self-destruction that comes with it.

The installation consists of 5 paintings on paper, which are hung together. Over top of the paintings, a video is projected that interacts with the paintings and opens up the durken universe of self-destruction.

Dilum Coppens is a Belgian artist, investigating the creation of "meaning" through mythologyical references. His practice consits of different media, ranging from painting and drawing to video and performance. Most often, his creations come together in total-installations with painterly touches.
