Glare is a project that includes the performance Sparks 2021 and the video-installation Rays. It is presented for the first time at STUK in its entirety as part of the exhibition Wired for Empathy.
Sparks 2021 is a performance preceded by a workshop, in which the power relations between child and adult are turned upside down. It is based on a small but revolutionary act: consigning in the hands of children the reading of our future as a gesture of hope and rupture with the past. After an elaborate workshop, a group of local children accompanies a group of adults inside the exhibition space. There, they can read their hands, one at a time and once only, thus activating an open revelatory and interpretative process, where they are themselves the makers of visions and reflections.Rays, inspired by the performance Sparks 2021, is about the acquired knowledge of a group of children about the practice of clairvoyance as a possibility of reading reality.
