The theme for Per/Platform 2021 is Light. In its essence, light is a form of of energy. It is white and iridescent. It has been regarded as the symbol of life and intellectual enlightenment. In Chinese, light originates from a human body in action - the ancient character for light resembles a kneeling person lifting a fire bowl.
Similarly, performance art is rooted in the temporal and physical co-presence of the artist’s body in relation to time and space, manifested through action. Co-curated by Juliana Chan and Florence Lam, Per/Platform brings together artists both new to and experienced in performance art, to explore the boundless ways of experimentation in the live medium and to interpret the theme of light physically, metaphysically and metaphorically.
