TRANSMUTACIONES LAFKENCHE

PostAUKANAWnotext

Places of collective memory silently break through us daily, becoming a part of the photographic image of landscape. They travel unnoticed from  decorative to elements of fiction.

What is a place of collective memory in any case? Is there anything as such?

Is memory anything rather than the same collection of supposedly real events repeated over and over again?

The performative nature of a monument built to rise from the land and to  stand constantly glancing at the individual, cannot but be intervened by  becoming of the same nature.

To question this spaces as a contemporary being requires to initiate the  ritual of memory; in order to understand, the individual must transmute  and give that look back at them.

After a constant investigation and irruption in these spaces through out  the city of Berlin, artist-in-residence Aukanaw shares his performance  with a techno-shamanic ritual where the spectator becomes an active  part of the art piece. This proposal arises as a collaboration with Constanza Macras Dorky Park, Goethe Institute Chile, Slomo Studio for  sound experience design and Sofia Pastor as curator assistant.

- Please register at administration@dorkypark.org and receive your  invitation to attend Aukanaw Performance at Tempelhofer Feld,  September 2, 2021 -

Recommendation for the experience:

Bring comfortable clothing and a blanket to lay on the ground.
Bring  some snacks we will share altogether.
Bring your phone charged and your headphones.

We are very pleased to announce, that with the support of Goethe-Institut Chile, DorkyPark is welcoming the Chilean performance creator and scenic researcher AUKANAW as our artist-in-residency. During his stay in Berlin, Aukanaw will continue working on the concept of „TRANSMUTACIONES LAFKENCHE“ – a site-specific Ritual Installation, in collaboration with the Berlin non-binary sound artist SPOKE.

With this project, Aukanaw investigates how the act of installation – the body turned into a visual sign – is capable of breaking into the landscape, thereby reconfiguring a whole new context, time, history and multiple memories. How is it, that this living image that we observe returns our gaze and questions us sensibly and politically about our being-in the world?

As a work-in-progress, we will invite you to join a try-out ritual on September 2nd and 3rd.
More detailed information soon.
