There Are Gods Around Us
Durational performance and installation
‘There Are Gods Around Us’ looks at how the materials around us do not only serve functions, but form parts of our identity and purposes. We took these culturally significant objects and asked how their meanings shifted from our parents’ generations to ours when we migrate across the globe. Telling stories about the imaginary gods and performing a made-up ritualistic dance, we look at how these acts transform our mental and physical states. Taking reference from East Asian mythology, traditions and rituals, it is a queer and Asian work that looks into what hope means in our age of great instability and crisis.
