What do you remember about your childhood bedroom? Or about each of the homes you ever lived in? Homes that you have never revisited or that no longer exist?
Lebanese visual artist,Ely Daou delves into the depths of his memory – and of history – to recall the many different apartments he was forced to live in, and to evacuate, during the Lebanese civil war and in the years thereafter.
Cognitive mapping is a mental process that lets us gather, recall, and make sense of information about our everyday or metaphorical environments. Gathering us around an old-fashioned overhead projector, Ely tells us his personal life story, using architectural details as the starting points to enter the spaces and events of the past, building whole apartments on memories.
I…Cognitive Maps is an intimate, moving performance that explores the connection between knowing where we are and who we are.
THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE KOMEDIA STUDIO BAR
