We are happy and excited to announce that artist Trine Mee Sook will be doing the performance ‘selections from Vampire Talk I-III’ at the Monster Network event ‘Strange Blood?’ on 21 October at LitteraturHaus in Copenhagen at 8pm.
About Trine Mee Sook’s Vampire Talk:
The text based performance trilogy, Vampire Talk, combines semi-biographical experience with notions of racial representation and otherness in relation to vampirism and trans-national adoption. Suggesting that vampires and trans-national adoptees share not only blood-related interests but also certain similarities in relation to identity building, sex, family, and colonial discourse.
The topics of Vampire Talk I concentrate on origin, racism, and the general myths of vampires and international adoption.
The specific topics of Vampire Talk II concentrate on ethnic representation, reproduction, sex and blood.
The specific topics of Vampire Talk III concentrate on colonialism, Korean culture & custom, and death.
