Performance artist Phia Ménard is in a league of her own, having developed her own visual language beyond anything found in any school or pigeonhole. She started her career as a circus artist and in 1998 founded her company Non Nova with the aim of opening up the boundaries between juggling and pantomime on the one hand, and dance and theatre on the other, and in doing so, transforming them both. Ménard created part one of her Immoral Tales, Mother House, for documenta 14 in Kassel. Dressed like a sci-fi version of the goddess Athena, she recreates the Parthenon using pieces of cardboard. Her plan is to build a house for Europe, while at the same time highlighting how exposed homeless people and refugees are. Just as makeshift cardboard dwellings no longer offer any protection when the first rain shower comes, Ménard’s painstakingly created temple is also transient. A radical, powerful evening about humankind and our environment in the eternal cycle between dying and becoming.
