Cornering a Hare
Sewing a thread that connects the visual and performing arts, Cornering a Hare reimagines religious and spiritual traditions as contemporary art practice. The audience is invited to explore the gallery and spend time with the ongoing performances, which work to disband the space-time confines of a traditional concert. Fictionalized rituals simulating meditation, pilgrimage, penance, and trances are fused together with pop-culture to create displaced images. By juxtaposing and mixing these together with movement repetition, the emerging images materialize a question: what belief systems are really at play?
