take me to my house
„I don’t know if I’m creating this or if this is actually what is meant to be. / And you know they, they say that you gotta think what you want into existence.“ – Miley Cyrus in BB Talk
In her performance take me to my house, Camilla Schielin will explore different layers of heritage. Both material and immaterial aspects of heritage will encourage a broad and rhizomatic reading of the term. Encountering what once lived – that which transcends time and authorship equally – can be confusing. Facts underpin loss, ignorance allows for hope, the future is open at every turn?
This house, this body, which remembers and is caught up in arguments over the past, addresses question of perspective, dependency and orientation. Remnants and legacy, gestures and affects all demand the reframing of handed down rules and abandoned responsibilities.
