Title of Programme: Moving Earth, Crossing Water, Eating Soil, Sensing Maps, Seeing Spirits: An Artist-Led Workshop
Date and Time: 28 January 2023, Saturday, 2pm – 330pm
How do we situate ourselves in unfamiliar places? What might we witness when we situate ourselves in places that asks for your whole body to listen? How do we locate the breath and sound in the quiet pauses within spaces?
In this artist-led workshop, participants are invited to navigate through different environmental knowledges, lessons and wisdoms. Through storytelling and engaging with the overarching themes of the artwork, participants will be invited to reorient our senses to the coordinates of unruly indeterminable spaces on maps. This workshop will take you through the process of creating a memory map, a geomantic compass and a handcrafted talismanic memento.
Title of Programme: Animal Days on a Geomantic Compass
Date and Time: 28 January 2023, Saturday, 530pm – 7pm
What cognitive maps and compass bearing abilities do we possess? What lessons might we glean from microfauna and the wisdoms of creaturely companions? What might we find through wayfinding paths that resist linearity?
This performance is presented as part of the first activation of the Moving Earth, Crossing Water, Eating Soil. Alongside guest artists and collaborators who have been invited to respond to the themes of the work, experience Pulau Sekijang Bendera at sunset as we navigate through different environmental knowledges and wisdoms while thinking about the names of places, creatures, ghosts and gods that cease to exist in our immediate memory.
