Sigrid Keunen dressed up in a shop playing viola

CONCEPT

The mannequins in the window shop transmit something about the style of the shop as well as attract and invited the passer-by to figure out in one way or another their longings and cravings.

This performance wishes to become a dispersion of the moment, a pastime for the passer-by, a diversion for the eyewitness, a divertissement for the brain.

ARCHER contemplates on self-reflection and gazes at an inner game.

As a consequence this shared public moment is a 'junction' between classical music and performance, a 'junction' between life and fantasy.

The Wow! signal came from the Sagittarius constellation.

Or the ARCHER can be CUPID: ‘Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.’ –Plato-
