THE Empathy

PerformanceatSMK1Img2CUT_THE_GAP_program (2)IMG_0753

Schulman’s precise investigation of language points to the construction and deconstruction of reality through the speech act. The empathy is a  performative lecture, a derive across a mass of stories which the speaker delivers in awkward positions, while employing different strategies of storytelling and sliding one signifier into another. Disparate objects and words become united through sound and visuality, confusion is present but a feeling of empathy will later arise reuniting everything into a complete idea of an impossible meaning. When Christopher Columbus arrived to the Americas, the indigenous couldn’t see the boats. They just couldn’t.
