A performance installation by Kata Mejia
”Homage to a Hero” is the third performance of three and commemorates the one year anniversary of the artists youngest brother being murdered. It is a performance installation to pay homage to his life which he sacrificed to save his loved ones. The second and third performances of the three were conceived after his death yet all are related.
This trilogy began with “Beyond The Threshold” which explored the idea of transcendence. It continued with “Healing” which explored the pain and suffering associated with the loss of a loved one and concludes with “Homage to a Hero”.
Homage to a Hero is a two day performance Installation that recreates a farewell ritual. On the anniversary of her murdered brothers birthday that would have been his 22nd, the artist symbolically guides her hero brother to the eternal realm.
