The Foreigner ‐ unknown unlabelled unexpected

Research output: Contribution to journalReview ArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The open-ended durational performance 'The Foreigner' is a personal response to the migration question currently involving Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The work explores and questions notions of identity and territoriality, reality and virtuality, through the anonymity and vulnerability of the artist, and the active participation of the audience in the performance process. The artist's body worked as a mirror that reflected personal ideas, constructs, and emotions of the visitors, who experience and interpret the image of The Foreigner according to their personal histories and past experiences. The result is a multiplicity of perspectives on migration and beyond.
