The exhibition features two video works by American filmmaker and performance artist Wu Tsang, “Into A Space Of Love” (2018) and “Shape of a Right Statement” (2008) which have marked two moments in the artist’s career. In her pratice Wu explores issues such as the politics of visibility and appropriation, the ephemerality of community and performance as modes of resistance.
Both films use performance and layered fictions to explore trauma and alternative forms of expression and communication – from spoken language to dance – which serve as vehicles to express reality in its complex and multilayered ways of materializing in the world. Tsang’s work reveals hidden histories and marginalized narratives through the act of performing itself.
