Performance by the Voodoo Divas
French artist Fred Koenig is holding a one-night only performance in collaboration with South African dancer Ebrahim Medell and actress Toni Morkel called My Little Pink bag Stories. ‘The Voodoo Divas’ is the name given to creative duo Koenig and Morkel, which focuses on ‘absurd, risqué performances to challenge and dismantle conservative notions of art-making’. Koenig describes his style as ‘falling between contemporary conceptual high art and total trash’.
Koenig blends photography, film and performance, manipulating these to allow him to expose the fiction and construction of identities.
