There Are Gods Around Us

Ghost and John, There Are Gods Around Us, Making Space Gallery

Durational performance and installation

 

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.
