Recently, Elena Lamberti and I launched a cultural and transnational project titled “Performigrations: People Are the Territory”. The assumption is that each immigrant is a performer: no matter the reason for the move, relocation forces one to adjust to a new territory and to play a new role. In this sense, the visible map is not the real territory; people are the territory.
The project, in fact, does not intend to ‘preach’ or ‘teach’ preconceived notions on ‘heritage’, ‘identity’ and ‘migrations’; instead, it aims to make audiences aware of the complexity inherent in all ‘processes of change’ that form our human ecologies.
We are seeking seven artists to form an international ‘creative team’ to implement an art-installation on mobility, relocation, identity, through mobile technologies.
