Qian Geng & Wang Ziheng (Beijing)
Performance, calligraphy and sound
Sunday, March 8th 2020
14:30 – 19:00 (performance starts at 15:00)
ISLAND, Banksstraße 2a, 20097 Hamburg
Qian Geng approaches calligraphy as a performative physical act, a raw collision of movement and the large-scale canvas. For his first ever performance in Germany, he will be accompanied by the floating saxophone/noise soundscapes of Wang Ziheng. Together, they will commune with their audience in a powerful, ephemeral ritual.
This performance was originally intended to be a part of the upcoming 4th edition of Noisexistance-Festival which sadly didn’t work out. Thankfully WAF, Agency & and Island stepped in and now bring these two artists to Hamburg. I’ll have the honour to giv a short introductive talk before the performance.
