Interposing experiences and selves in a silent conversation
While overlaying clashes and resemblances of both cities, the artists bond instantly, getting lost and found in themselves.
During their drifting process, artist Nana Janus and Ju Matos, were interposed not only by the experience, but also by themselves as they were trying to find Sao Paulo in Beijing.
Performance no 1 - Looking for Sao Paulo in Beijing
For their first Performance, they have crossed the city of Beijing, as twins, placing signs written in Chinese, inviting people to join them in the research either coming to our station in Cao Chang Di, or following the project in Instagram.
Performance no 2 - Finding their Place
On the second performance, the artists merged into one. Not only among the two of them, but with their territory, as they found their place in Cao Chang Di, where the A Sala installation held the starting point of the connection between cities aligning the project concept.
Performance no 3 - Let Forever Be
For the last performance, they presented themselves as part of the place, playing with their bodies to enroll the development of design, following the assemblages that were develop to create the place that welcomed the Chinese audience to rethink the use of space and leftovers, through dialogues on ways of living a contemporary life.
