KYRIE ASINI dissolves the clear separation between historical facts and Delprats own artistic cosmos, in which her enthusiasm for the donkey motif is also evident. At the centre of the visual-acoustic work is the so-called medieval donkey feast 'Fête de l'âne', which is comparable to today's carnival. The originally biblical festival, which was once celebrated on 14 January in memory of the flight to Egypt, has changed over time into a frolicsome festival. At its centre was a satirized mass in which pagan rituals were incorporated. Of essential importance was the eroticized, alienated liturgical mass chant, which was ended with the word ‚hinam‘. The chosen fool bishop gave the blessing received, which was answered with animal sounds. In the ten-minute video you can see the artist herself with two donkey-ears made of white paper. In the background, you hear liturgical singing, to which the artist answers with the animal sounds. Interspersed with her own drawings and pictures, the video becomes a bizarre, partly Dadaist celebration of the former Feast of Fools.

The intertwining of apparently incompatible systems is revealed in the video Symptoms of Schizophrenia. In grainy black-and-white images, one sees a series of masked people one after the other, gesticulating in front of the camera or frozen in a pose. The sequences are documentary shots of people in psychiatric wards in the 1940s, whose masks were propably intended to prevent them from being recognized. Without one hearing what they say, their behaviour in combination with the disguise is disturbing. Hélène Delprat reinforces the impression by repeatedly placing an artificial defect in the form of image noise over the pictures. At the same time, the pictures remind us of a theatre performance and the boundaries between healthy and sick, authenticity and play become blurred.
