Stars High in Amnesia's Sky winks at time. It is a show/installation that scratches the present’s surface without restraint, on which it plays with gravity. It’s a disturbing chameleonic show, a relentless remix of banalities and personal histories that are pinned in an insectarium in which Madonna and Ceausescu sit on the same page.
