Twelve, a sound and dance performance by Andio Lai and Son Tse Wing Yan
Andio Lai and Son Tse Wing Yan
To conclude the first Open Call for Young Curators’ winning exhibition away, Mur Nomade has commissioned a sound and dance performance by sound artist Andio Lai and dancer Son Tse Wing Yan. Invited by curator Yip Kai Chun, the pair presents their new work at Mur Nomade on the South Island Art Day. The curator is also present.
The performance Twelve depicts the recurrence of attachment and detachment in life. Twelve is the number of months per year and zodiac signs, representing a cycle of time. In the performance, daily objects are appropriated to become musical apparatuses with sensor and digital processing. The two performers – an instrument player and a dancer – are oppositional forces to create and destroy the connection between the physical and audio. The soundscape and space follow a recurrent pattern of an escalating attachment and detachment – very much like how time passes.
