illuminations of created place
A performance installation presented by artist WeiZen Ho.
Watch WeiZen Ho's performance installation at The Concourse. WeiZen attempts to embody the sense of place via the archive of the feet; walking around the local area of Willoughby, considering the history and significance of the sites she was visiting.
To be in place, is to connect to the diverse observations, memories and beliefs surrounding that created place. WeiZen engaged the local residents of Willoughby who shared their favourite tracks and places, and this has informed her final performance-installation that is made of, and for, the place of Willoughby. WeiZen believes that walking helps to activate the body memory and can elicit stories not just from the present, but can also serve as pathways to memories in other places. illuminations of created place as a performance-installation is also about the imagination of the beginning, the phenomenon of the first landscape. Her methodology insists on the devising process to be of and for place, where she is attempting to rekindle remembrances and shift our perceptions of time, beyond the accustomed chronometric manner.
illuminations of created place is part of the Willoughby City Council curated exhibition Parallel Wanderings 双 行 游.
