publication, video installation, sound

In this new work Petra Bauer looks at the procession known as Mechelen Ommegang (or Cavalcade), a world heritage event which only takes place every twenty-five years. The last time it was in 1988, since then society has undergone many changes. The artist concentrates on the production process of this edition of the Ommegang. Choreography for the Giants consitsts of a publication that traces that process with particular critical attention paid to the way the organizers have tried to represent the whole of Mechelen society in the Ommegang. Bauer is also presenting the video installation about the procession, made in collaboration with Marius Dybwad Brandrud.
