"There is a time when bodies are read, a time when secrets and fantasies are no longer safe in your head."

 

Horned Man takes you on a journey into the world of poetic rituals, by which the line between fantasy and reality becomes very, very thin. A lie is often more beautiful than the truth. The most important attributes are the thoughts of the viewers, which are inexplicably and repeatedly unravelled. Suggestion and nonverbal communication are stronger than we dare to believe.

 

Where does public space stop and intimate space begin when it comes to reading and manipulating thoughts and actions?

 

This performance explores the old and new systems that reflect the pursuit of the supernatural or that express a future reality in which psychology and neurology enable us to read and manipulate the thoughts of others. Based on the philosophy that there is no such thing as coincidence and that everything is preordained, he creates visual and poetic performance installations that – surprisingly and inexplicably – show again and again that free choice is not as free as it seems. The viewers, who play an active role, end up having an inexplicable surrealist experience. This ‘unreality’ forms a new reality in which the poetic world of Kurt Demey emerges.
