Alisa Oleva

Tracing the Inside
A collective action

WHAT: In her recent works, Oleva used to lead the audience to ‘trace’ the exterior (‘from the outside’) of the buildings with their hands in order to sense its multiple textures, rhythms and surfaces. ‘Touch’ is the way she builds the relationship with the outside, the way she experiences it on her walks and when she practices parkour. At the moment we have to stay at home and we are not allowed to ‘touch’. “I can only touch the inside. So, I am getting to know my room; I walk to all its corners. I want to try and trace it from the inside, following one continuous sensing its surfaces, corners, patterns and sounds. Getting to know my home in a new way.”

Filmed by her partner, the artist invites the participants to assist and contribute to her ‘tracing’ from their homes. While exploring the surfaces and the skin, the artist questions the meaning of ‘home’.

The performance will be followed by a discussion session led in English.
