PERFORMANCE AS PROCESS: SYOWIA KYAMBI
Between Us: Spaces
By Syowia Kyambi
Transpositions 07 June 2016
What happens to the authentic self when the process of building a nationalistic identity is created through the breaking down and rebuilding of a person? Syowia Kyambi's new work, Between Us: Spaces navigates questions of communal identity, the state, self-censorship and fear in relationship to the individual. How do people negotiate their own vulnerabilities; do we ever see our real selves if we don't know the self, have never known it, how will it be recognised if one is constantly looking through someone else's lens?
