JUST LIKE IT NEVER EXISTED
The performance explores memory’s malleability and authority’s impact on historical narratives. It is a visual depiction of erasing history, a thought-provoking exploration of how history is constructed and the role that memory and authority play in shaping it.
The use of ink, a handwritten book, a formal outfit, a seated position on a desk, and a surveillance camera in the performance have been deliberately chosen to enhance the impact of the message.
The choice of props and setup in the performance are intentionally designed to create an impactful message about the importance of preserving records and acknowledging the role of memory and authority in shaping history. The performance emphasizes the need for transparency and accountability in political and historical narratives and the potential consequences of attempting to manipulate or erase them.
