Power to the Unspoken - Echoes of Resistance is a performative project that investigates the relationships between writing, speaking, and drawing. Engaging with social concepts such as “I” and “We” and their interaction, the project takes a look at rhetoric in public space by analysing the act of manifestation in its potential for visual transcription through the act of scribbling. Based on the idea of vocal expression, text is rendered on impulse into illegible drawings. Here, scribbling entails a gesture of overwriting to counter the abundance of words in a fragile society. What imaginaries appear when bodies resist and negotiate in the absence of words? When scribbles replace the verbal, a space of the unspoken is accessed – a space that only exists through sound, movements, and traces.


After the events, the installation of the performance will be additionally accessible on SA, 17 04 2021 from 11 am-3 pm.
