“The Wall” is a performance that investigates current global migration situation and human conditions through shredded paper. When we talk about walls in relation to borders, we often think about physical walls, such as walls between USA and Mexico border or The Berlin Wall. However, what really stop people from crossing borders is not just a physical wall, but an invisible one – paper – immigration paper, refugee policies, and laws . The shredded paper in this work is a destroyed wall and an evidence of unsustainable civilization. And I use fishing as a method of political investigation and inquiry.
This performance seeks intersections created by experiences of immigration and globalization. it raises awareness of our current global migration crisis, looking beyond national border and our shared responsibilities as citizen of the world, and how we continue to see ourselves in each other, and how we create a space that are grounded in inclusiveness and respect for dignity and freedom we all deserve.
