Met Nicole on 10/02 and discussed about the best project/format for the presentation. I proposed a presentation of Fold and of my new project 452 Park Place (working title). I'd never presented Fold in the framework of the performance installation — but it was, after all, a finished piece of work. Nicole found my new project more interesting and perhaps could reap more benefits from the setup of the presentation. I felt the same way.
I have a feeling that talking about this piece of work and performing the first part would be a largely emotional experience. (I would probably feel the same degree of vulnerability as I did during Art Amsterdam). It is a source of discomfort, a space I am unlikely to enter without the construct (of the gallery, performance, art "enthusiasts".)
The decision (from her editorial direction and my own pervious thinking) came to this:
- forgo the presentation of Fold
- lead with the performance that evoke of the loss of home
- tell the audience about the project and its context
- ask the audience to draw something that reminds them of their home, however they define it
Next to finish thinking:
- meet Nicole at 2pm, 13/02 @ Garage (to see the space)
- decide on the components of the performance (which space, is there any visual)
- what is my pitch after the performance? How do I keep a genuine tone while withholding the intimacy?
- what props do i bring for the drawing exercise?
- what after?
