Ochkovskaya’s live performance and site-specific installation within Canute’s Palace merges themes of the mythical with science fiction. A sense of wonder entices viewers to immerse themselves within the fabricated post-human environment, encouraging new perceptions of the world by taking the audience to a visual Other.
Occupying the space is Ochkovskaya’s performative figure and a grand ornamental throne. The figures ‘non-human’ appearance transforms his identity, giving spirit and energy to a creature of ethereal myth; stretching the boundaries of the imagination and the wondrous tale of King Canute.
