STOP LOOK GO
Between 31 October until 30 November 2021 I was attached to Kathmandu, Nepal. During my stay I stayed at SPACE A Art Trust in central Kathmandu. Within the time frame I created and implemented in total four projects combined under the working title STOP LOOK GO. The projects included two interdisciplinary collaboration projects , one Social Sculpture Workshop and one artist talk.
Curator was Neda Haffari from SPACE A Art Trust. The project was supported by Stroom, The Hague, Netherlands.
STOP LOOK GO
STOP LOOK GO. In collaboration with the flautist Mrs. Yajoo Acharya (Bhaktapur, Nepal). The work combines music, video and performance. The theme of the work relates to the city of Kathmandu and its social and urban environment. The city is reflected and interpreted through metaphorical images, improvised performance and flute music. The live premiere took place on November 21, 2021 at the renowned Mandala Theatre in Kathmandu, Nepal. There will also be an edited art and performance video version.
Yajoo Acharya is a young female flute player from Bhaktapur which is 13 km away from Kathmandu . Her instrument is the traditional flute. She studied at the DEPARTMENT OF PERFORMING ARTS AND MUSIC OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALCUTTA, India
She interpreted and accompanied the images and live performance with a very personal and improvised flute play.
STOP LOOK GO was the main part of my multi-part art project of the same title in Kathmandu, Nepal.
