Rhythm

Surrender in a group to the oral and musical tradition that is part of tattooing in its original form. In artist Kwinnie Lê's performance you take part in the ritual stamping of tattoo pigment. Mortar and mortar form a cadence, which is believed to create a connection between the physical and spiritual worlds.

A rhythm as a fleeting conduit for ancestral stories. Lê's performance is a meditation on oral histories. In it she raises questions such as: who gets the authority to pass on that knowledge and who is allowed to receive it? With Lê, the story lies mainly in the rhythm of stamping. And just as the stories through oral transmission from generation to generation increasingly deviate from the primal story, the rhythms during the sessions will also constantly change. In the continuous performance, Lê always uses the rhythm of the previous group as a starting point for the next.
