Liminal States is an experimental piece that acts as both a fixed installation and the focal point of a durational performance. A structural piece will be made by the artist – remaining incomplete.
Throughout the period of the festival, dancers — physical manifestations of a sound wave — will perform and leave imprints on the murals, leaving a remnant of their presence and performance there.
The piece reflects Little India’s constant state of transition. Like a growing organism, the precinct is never static. Every stimulus thrown in leaves its mark there. As an installation, Liminal States highlights the liminal nature of our interactions with strangers, as well as the idea that spaces — and places — are made by the people who interact with them. While the visual artist sets the intention of the physical installation, the dancers are ultimately the ones determining its final outcome. The piece thus grows and evolves, both as a reflection of the artist as well as the dancers who interact with it.
