The Pace between Your Hand and My Breath
A collaborative performance created by Katherine Ka Yi Liu and Enya Zia Fortuna. The composition of live performance intertwined with sculpture and sound is based around the phenomenology of perception in time and existence. By composing a narrative through live and fundamental objects the artists’ pose the question, how does one value oneself in such a fast-growing economic world? Psychologically, economically and culturally, speed is taking a profound toll on our lives. The faster we go, the less time we have, and the more we try to catch up, the farther behind we fall. Collectively performing between the deliquescence of ice and the bonding of clay, the objects combine our time-obsessed society with today’ s capitalism and question where do we fit the time for change in our existence.
In order to bring dialogues between existence and time, one presents a platform to question and explore how our pace in life is the product of specific ideas and practices, by unfolding how the phenomenon of tempo and senses has emerged. The objects as a result reference the existence of time and what remains in an external world.
