A work by Chloë Lum & Yannick Desranleau
The myth of Laocoön is the basis of the installation, which responds to the architectural details of the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde's wall as well as the theatre's built and institutional environment. In Virgil's Aeneid, Laocoön is punished by the gods for attempting to save the Trojans from their fate. This series of photographs references pictorial representations of the myth, as well as the plight of contemporary whistleblowers, who are oppressed by the authorities whose abuses they are trying to bring to light.
Creation: Chloë Lum & Yannick Desranleau
In collaboration with: Architecturama
Presented on the West façade of the TNM from August 30 to October 15, 2017, as part of KM3.
