The overarching aim is to foster an interactive dynamic between the live performer and the audience, encouraging engagement within the space. Central to the exhibition’s theme is an exploration of power dynamics inherent in the act of granting or seeking permission, echoing themes of colonialism.
Each space within the exhibition prompts conversations around the complexities of permission, intertwined with the profound emotions of longing for acceptance or facing rejection. Additionally, the experience delves into the poignant struggles of migrants and marginalized individuals, shedding light on the grief and displacement that precede the marking of their journeys.
