Kerstin Cmelka’s works usually emerge from a kind of process of negotiation, one in which she invites her artist friends to participate as actors. Through a series of rigorous rehearsals, Cmelka shapes her actors into characters through text, gestures, and costumes, but most importantly repetition. The result is a familiar story played by a cast of motley archetypes revealing crucial undercurrents of piercing social critique. (SCW)
