Meet You There, Somewhere
By Cecelia Farias Calderon
To different extents and for various reasons, people all relate to certain objects, sounds and places in their daily lives.
The human body can be seen as a landscape conformed by personal histories and the city can indeed be read as a morphological entity too. In this work, the city becomes a performer in itself, offering a canvas in which people write, erase and collect traces, founding relations and diversions between those who live in it and its apparently motionless character which is activated and transformed by use.
This work is the result of a collection of walks, sounds and memories which were all encountered in an urban context, creating overwritten layers that can be identified or get lost within the performance-installation. Through it, I am able to show what I found and what I'm still looking for, in the city.
Themes of displacement and cultural differences, inspiration from the Situationist movement and an interest in psychogeography have merged towards a research concerned by how persons are affected by places. This will only be completed through the "see and be seen" process that represents for those who have been part of it and those who watch the results.
Come prepared to experience a performance-installation that might speak to your most intimate or beloved memories, while looking at the human body as a medium and subject-of-doing in constant relation to the Architecture we are in everyday.
