La Perma-Perla Kraal Emporium
by Zoë Paul
“Which creature has one voice and yet becomes four-footed and two-footed and three-footed?”
“There are two sisters: one gives birth to the other and she, in turn, gives birth to the first. Who are the two sisters?”
La Perma-Perla Kraal Emporium is an exhibition, is a settlement, is a lounge, is an emporium. I’ll robe you in Park Life protection and serve you herbal teas, from the mouths of muses, to revive your senses.You’ll roll me beads, squeeze and form and pierce clay spheres.
This is an exhibition about permaculture, and bodies.
In a bar, in a gallery.
In the day and in the night.
This is the name of your neighbour.
Fight with teeth and claw and words.
This is the land of the lotus eaters.
This is bead-rolling behaviour.
The sphinx says “you will be free from my clutches when you have guessed the riddle” so maybe stay all day, take your time and come again.
In collaboration with PARK LIFE (Klaus Jürgen Schmidt and Spiros Pliatsikas)
