Hong, Y (2017) Echoes. In: Venice Agendas 2017: The Contract, Campo Santa Margherita etc, Venice, 10 - 12 May 2017.

Item Type: Performance
Creators: Hong, Y
Abstract: Echoes took place for three days of preview for Venice Biennale 2017, Turner Contemporary Margate, Folkestone and Spike Island Bristol. Echoes is a relay of one person’s protest, realised through individual performances testifying to the idea of equality through individually different ways of expression. The project becomes a collection of performances by anonymous participants conducting their individual performances in public places. The entire process of organising/realising the performance relies on web communication in order to build trust within a group and to express a resistance towards hierarchical legitimacy that support discrimination. All the performers listen to the original soundtrack made by the artist and produce/improvise their own performance according to this. The soundtrack is not exposed to the audience, but it functions as an invisible conductor. [The original soundtrack is an edited collection of sounds/recordings reflecting the current socio-political status quo]
