Who am I? Who are you? And am I still I without the presence of you? In her new interactive installation YiLing Hung takes you on a journey of discovery to the proposition “I” will not exist without the presence of the “You”. Don’t miss it the 2nd, 3rd, 4th of July 2021 at Akoesticum!

I = You : an Interactive Performance & Multi-media Installation – LABORATELIER x YiLing Hung

When do you feel like an outsider? In what condition you are feeling excluded? In our everyday life, we sometimes encounter the feeling of left behind. This work is inspired by the artist’s personal experience of being a foreigner in the Netherlands which leads her to the questions of “who am I?” and “who are you?” It seems that “I” and “You” are two separated and unrelated subjects, however through the personal experience as a foreigner, YiLing Hung realizes that the “I” won’t be existed without the presence of the “You”. This thought becomes the core of this project, of which the spectators will be guided to physically engage with the installation and through the engagement a conversation between the artist (I/You) and him/her (You/I) will be generated. The performance is designed for one spectator per show.
