For the last event of the year, and just before New Orleans artist-in-residence program Deltaworkers is leaving town, the public is cordially invited on Sunday December 14th (5PM) to join at the residency house in Holy Cross, where Timmy van Zoelen presents the performance The Whale’s Ear (2014), and the teaser trailer for his new film They Humiliate The Human.

THE WHALE’S EAR

This multimedia performance is a speculative reading of an etching by Jacob Matham titled ‘Whale Stranded at Berckhey’.

THEY HUMILIATE THE HUMAN

In Van Zoelen’s upcoming film, which he is developing as a result of his research period in New Orleans, the male voice of the artist takes us through his existential account of time travel by way of slurping energy drinks. Eventually They Humiliate The Human will be the result of a series of sensual phantasies exploring the voluptuousness of time-travel through object-oriented power relations.
