Kyla Kegler: Mountains

at Undercurrent

In the magical and whimsical world of Kyla Kegler’s Mountains we are confronted with large, bright, papier-mâché creature heads which are worn by the various archetypes she has developed within her ethos. Appearing mythical, minotaur-like, the remainder of the costume is all human, creating an alienating yet quirky, familiar feeling. Mountains is an ongoing episodic series of performances with an iteration to debut on October 1st, 7:30 pm at Undercurrent. Yellow-Beaked-Bird, Horse, Uni-Meta-Verse, Cat-Dog, and Monster Society Gemini are a few of the characters Kegler has invented, each with their own nick-name, pronoun, theme song, family dynamic, and astrological sign. The artist herself dons her own archetype, the Dictator, who narrates for all of the other personas. Employing untrained performers, and directing their every action, questions of improvisation, reality, and free-will emerge. The clumsy portrayal of part human and part something else coupled with cosplay is loaded with psychological weight leaving us wondering where we fit into Kegler’s world as well as our own.
