Mobilising voices

Jeremiah Day

Mobilizing Voices can be seen as a contemporary choreography in the line of the legacy of Simone Forti and Steve Paxton combined with the ideas around civic initiatives and civil disobedience (Hanna Arendt) in both historical and contemporary context. The exhibition period is used as a work and presentation period. The exhibition itself rather serves as a backdrop, a placeholder, research material, an explanation, an example and consists of a series of co-operative works. Among others, Jeremiah Day works for this with Gilles Vandaele, a Belgian activist and young filmmaker.

Jeremiah Day's practice integrates photography and an improvisational, moving / speaking performance method in an idiosyncratic and personal way of describing. The historical and the political are reflected by means of embodiment, incarnation and encounters with places of memory.
