“Because so much depends upon vacuous speech, and so sometimes it is best to refrain from all human voice; because when we sit with ourselves, there is just air, just light, and this is how we will learn to listen—” writes Barbara Jane Reyes, Bay Area Pinay poet, author, and educator.
In this performance artwork two Pinay artists meet to grapple with the distances of diaspora, language, and medium. They listen through the translations of voice and matter despite the intervals between sigaw/echo. With sound as just air and painting as just light, they come together as an ekphrastic practice to create, to converse, to listen.
Please plan to arrive early as parking on campus can be tricky. Learn more about parking and directions to UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus.
This event is co-sponsored by the Carolina Asia Center.
