The project explores consumerism as a global epidemic, as a crazy centrifuge of resource – product-garbage, as an emotional, sexual, resource, market and information constitution of life. The project ascetically chooses the simple routine act of chewing a gum for its only means of theatrical exploration. The gum has been produced, flavoured, it is chemical, non-recyclable and its only function is pleasure. After chewing the gum is spitted out and thus becomes garbage. “Golem” explore consumerism in its partnership with the consumable, as a pseudo-realization of unconscious and never-ending dreams. The project interprets the eternal dream for the Paradise and circles around the trinity “emptiness – consumerism – pollution” in the context of the ancient Jewish myth for Golem.
