DEFINING CROSS-CULTURAL POSITIONS
FIGURATIVE ー is a project which is representative of a system, that constitutes questions which address the disparity between idea and word, language and artistic expression.
I would like to investigate how cultural systems push us to make choices between verbal and non-verbal communication, with an emphasis on how proxemics — our human use of space and the distance between human bodies — is disrupted by cultural codes and norms. With interdisciplinary collaborators who are living abroad in the European performing art community, we aim to understand what are the various challenges of translating the language of practice into the language of words. The collaborators and I share a mutual appreciation for experimental performative works that bend and challenge genre. We strive to develop work that reflects this ideal through connecting and collaborating with artists from various avenues of creativity. Allows the possibility for new influence and exchange to direct the creative process experience.
