Venue: Stadtgarten, Venloer Str. 40, 50672 CologneIn cooperation with Stadtgarten and TanzFaktur
Abi Tariq presents a live sound performance as a culmination of sessions on the streets of Paris where feelings of intercultural anxiety and otherness were transformed into song. The audience in Köln has an opportunity to at first embody the Parisian passer-by, and upon submitting any form of ID, gain access to a deeper layer of the performance. Poetic and abstract in felt emotion, yet confrontational and political in commenting on the bureaucracy, inaccessibility and exclusivity presented to an ‘alien’/ étranger in France.
ABI TARIQ is a Pakistani conceptual and performance artist based in Paris. He crafts site and context-specific experiences, installations and transmissions inspired by the complex and often complicated entanglements between language, culture and power.
