In HIGH RELIEF Liliana Barros plays with leitmotifs and elements from sculpture and folk dance of the Ancient Greeks. The piece unfolds in a pulsating and almost hypnotic world, like a slow breaking of cracks from a frozen silence. Ivory bodies coalesce into a monumental sculptural form, like hybrid figures brought to life from rigidity.
It engages with a community that forms heroically and in control.
