Performance | Sandhya Daemgen
The Aquarium

In The Aquarium one wants to see and be seen, know and be known. It is against this backdrop of the constant search for knowledge, visibility and identity that Sandhya Daemgen offers us something in between. In between that of the real and the represented, known and the unknown, self and the other. The blurring of boundaries and sensing of connections begin in this constantly shifting reality.
Through rumination and movement, language and sound, Sandhya Daemgen offers a time and space to engage and expand the notion of real in our daily lives.
