THE DARK CIRCUS IS THE CENTERPIECE OF MUIAN. IT CONSISTS OF GRAPHICAL RENDITIONS OF ANSWERS AND ANALYSES OF THE MOST STRIKING STATEMENTS AND PHENOMENA DOCUMENTED DURING THE 2012 MEDIA HYSTERIA GENERATED BY THE SPRAYING OF THE AUTHOR`S SELF-PORTRAIT ON HUNDREDS OF LOCAL HISTORICAL SITES. THE AUTHOR HAS TATTOOED THE MUIAN STENCIL BETWEEN HIS SHOULDER BLADES AND CREATED APPROXIMATELY 280 DISTINCT TEMPORARY TATTOO COMPOSITIONS INVOLVING THE ORIGINAL ISSUERS OF SAID STATEMENTS. SOME ARE HUMOROUS, SOME OFFENSIVE, SOME OUTRIGHT PORNOGRAPHIC, ESPECIALLY THOSE DEDICATED TO JOURNALISTS AND PUBLIC SPEAKERS MIST COMPROMISED BY THEIR (RE)ACTIONS. THE DARK CIRCUS IS A MEANS OF WEAPONIZING ARTISTIC EXPRESSION AND RECALIBRATING IT TO INTOXICATE AND RADICALIZE PUBLIC SPEECH, SO FAR DOMINATED BY THE MEDIA, BY EXPLOITING THE FUNDAMENTAL ADVANTAGES ART HAS OVER JOURNALISM: ACCESS TO PERENNITY AND LACK OF DEONTOLOGICAL REGULATION. THE AUTHOR`S TATTOO WAS SURGICALLY REMOVED AND PRESERVED IN RESIN AS A RELIC PLACED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CENTRAL BODY ERECTED IN THE ROOM, FORCING VIEWERS TO REVOLVE AROUND IT DURING THEIR VISIT.
DUE TO TECHNICAL REASONS, THE DARK CIRCUS CANNOT BE PUBLISHED ON THIS WEBSITE, SINCE EACH IMAGE IS CONNECTED TO NEIGHBORING PHOTOS THROUGHOUT THE 3 M TALL AND 18 M LONG MURAL. FULL, HIGH RESOLUTION DOCUMENTATION OF THE DARK CIRCUS WILL BE MADE PUBLIC IN THE AUTUMN OF 2015, ON AN WEBSITE DEDICATED TO MUIAN AND PROPERLY EQUIPPED FOR THE TECHNOLOGICAL CHALLENGES IT RAISES.
