The word Mistiko translates to mystic. Candied Calamari uses this word to describe the importance of ritual and the sacred treatment of objects in their performance/installation at SOIL Gallery. Mistiko will display live actresses engaging in sacramental action in a futuristic landscape.The space will be altered by the actions of the performers and will remain with the residual evidence of activity for the remainder of the exhibition.
Candied Calamari is a collaboration between artists Rachel Debuque and Danielle Peters. Debuque and Peters met at the University of Georgia and formed by their collaboration over an interest in pattern, performance, and color. You can find their project on MISTIKO KICKSTARTER.
