Blueman & Filmomatic
by André Kuenzy
(traveling interactive performance)
The Blue Man travels around the world to share special moments with strangers. This character, in blue latex and deliberately mute, expresses the tensions between the individual and society trying to break down the barriers of stereotypes in surreal encounters. For Gibellina, Blueman will come with his portable Filmomatic, an interactive machine able to produce flip books of a 32 images sequence, memories gifts to his future encounters.
André Kuenzy (Suisse, 1965) is the creator and the avatar of the Blue Man (whose first appearance took place in 1999 in Basel). An explorer of all arts and a provider of unusual encounters, André Kuenzy offers a malicious and enlightened view of his environment. He exhibited at Images Vevey in 2020.
