Making Sense

WHAT: Throughout history, any contribution to society was only possible by asking beautiful questions.  Beautiful questions go beyond the act of questioning.  They are affective, reflective, illuminating and encouraging.They are always on the move yet have the patience to meet their subjects. These questions I’ve met, have been supporting me in the process of understanding myself and the universe not only through postulates but also through sensations. For the last couple of years, I have been archiving some of my intellectual and bodily processes as part of my artistic exploration and on how to convey my intuition and intention.  Part of these include my conversations with artists and thinkers who earnestly helped shape my ideas. For this performance, I requested beautiful questions from these people by asking them: “Could you please share with me the question(s) that you keep asking in life, over and over again?” I will embody these questions that are expected to be intellectually understood when communicated through language. Through this act, I not only free myself from the burden of the thoughts but I also intend to straddle between logic and sense; the intellectual and bodily understanding.
