I’m showing a new performance idea tonight at Kyozon Gallery as part of ‘Out of Space’. This piece explores points of oscillation between subject and object by combining dancing and painting on a huge 3.6 x 3 m canvas. Inspired by the spectatorship involved in life-drawing I began to question the power relationships that lead to these oscillations. And then the moment at which the subject is compelled to leave a trace of their own presence: in drawing, painting and words.
Tonight I’ll be collaborating with percussionist and composer YAS-KAZ.
If you are in Tokyo, please come. It starts at 19h00 and there are 2 other performances in this event themed around identity/foreignness, memory, and the body.
