“Moroloja” by Manuela Barile screened in Tbilisi, Georgia

The video-performance piece “Moroloja” by Manuela Barile was selected for the CologneOFF 2013 Georgia to be held between 16 and 18 May in Tbilisi. Moroloja is a video work inspired by Homer’s hymn to Demeter that describes the pain of the Goddess after she knew that Persephone’s daughter was abducted by Hades, the God of the underworld. It shows a young woman dressed in black clothes. She is alone, seated on a chair inside an abandoned house. She is Demeter, the Goddess of grain and fertility. Immersed in a complete solitude, she is suffering the sudden loss of her daughter.
