HARLEKING is a demon with multiple identities. His body expressions resembles those of Harlequin of the Commedia dell’Arte, a sly servant moved by an insatiable hunger. HARLEKING’s mode of communication has an hypnotic quality in which its content, often extreme and contradictory, merge to create a fluid, metamorphic system wherein anything can happen, yet all is blurred. It is reminiscent of the Grotesques, ancient wall decorations, in which monstrous figures emerge and blend in with elegant ornamental volutes.
Figures, which, although can evoke amusement, do not elicit any joy.
