Since 2006, Jon Mikel Euba has been developing RE: Horse, a ‘concert of images’ put into operation by two cameramen, a horse and its guide, the projection of Andy Warhol’s film of the Velvet Underground and Nico jamming in the Factory (1966), and the audience present, including photographers documenting the performance. Jon Mikel Euba further developed Re: Horse in the framework of Edition III – Masquerade.
RE: Horse has had several manifestations in the last years and sparked off related lecture performances. The formal challenges explored in RE: Horse, as well as the issues addressed content wise, are complex and multi-layered, in accordance with its structure that reminds of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. The ‘story line’ of this performative installation is supported by an open score in which man, woman, child, animal, object, and space are configured and reconfigured in an inexhaustible assembly of relations and representations.
