歴史を学ぶという行為についてのパフォーマンス(イギリスとポルト間の貿易史を、ワインとタラを通して学んだ )

International Conference on Live Interfaces 2018(ポルトガル、ポルト)




In this performance, the fixity and fluidity of history, digital materials, documenting and recording are explored by improvising the act of studying history, and improvising with the immediate recordings of the act. The recorded sounds of reading, writing, squiggling, drinking, eating and occasional mumbling are fluidified through Kakinoki’s physical manipulation. What the performer does can be regarded as learning, examining, organising, disorganising, manipulating or forging both certain history and the act of learning it. The nature and poetic sentiment of the act of learning are inherent elements behind the performance too.

The trading history between England and Porto through wine and cod was studied in this performance instance.
