MUSE is a multidisciplinary solo performance existing as a string of vignettes/ a visual essay/ a living museum of the images of woman as muse, both her fetishizations and truth. What started as an attempt at finding a muse myself, turned into an examination of how easily we have come to accept and even romanticize the exploitation of the woman muse throughout history, and more importantly how passively we consume those representations. MUSE is a manifestation of the questioning, researching, construction, and eventual embodiment of those depictions. MUSE is Kristen Bernier's personal experiment in bringing together some of her favorite artists who also happen to be some of her dearest friends.
