The Triumph of Fame by Marie-Caroline Hominal

(click on image to enlarge)


Swiss-based performer Marie-Caroline Hominal strips down the codes of theatrical artifice in a phantasmagorical and intimate one-on-one encounter with an audience member scheduled every 20 minutes. The Triumph of Fame is one of six poems by Petrarch title I Trionfi, which describe life through dueling virtues using the idea of triumph allegorically. In the poems, Fame triumphs over Death but is then defeated by Time and Eternity.
