The Azdora. The definition of mistress of the home, mother and best cook in the world. She rules the family with authority and at the same time gentle kindness. She resolves conflicts, but never loses her temper herself. Or does she? Swedish artist Markus Öhrn asked ten azdoras in the small Italian town of Santarcangelo to let their destructive desires run riot. The result is eleven rituals full of dark power, liberating energy and stirring courage. What began as a homage to his grandmother soon became the founding of a wild azdora housewives club! Now Öhrn is coming to Wiesbaden! In cooperation with the azdoras and ladies from Wiesbaden, he will continue working on loosening up inner tensions and create a sequel. A coup for freedom in four rituals and a declaration
of love for destructive energies …
