The imaginative space between a piece of language and an intersection of commonly overlooked details in the environment is treated like a strange object that opens a distinct process of observation. Acting as both host and instigator, Litó Walkey deals with the generative space among memory, presence and collective thinking. The listener is made complicit in a site of attention qualified by more than a single identifiable subject. Multiple intervals of return foreground the co-inhabitation of temporal, acoustic, spacial, physical and associative debris.
The work presented here is based on Come here dust and hair, a performance by Litó Walkey at Fylkingen, Stockholm 2018, with music by Boris Hauf and light design by Dinis Machado.
Many thanks to Florian Feigl, Asaf Aharonson, Kai Merke, Anne Schuh and Sophia New, to Weld Company Extended 2017 with whom the title of this work was generated, and to Boris Hauf and Alice Chauchat for seeing things with me.
Litó Walkey is a Berlin based artist whose work operates through performance, writing and choreography exploring non-hegemonic strategies for being connected, resourceful, and response-able. In her work, attentiveness procedures emphasize lateral and divergent thinking to consider the radical potential of marginal, accidental, and less visible phenomena. Collaborating through circuits of transversal interdisciplinary processes, Litó aims to create public spaces for critical thinking and experimentation unbound by single authorship, discipline or terminus. Litó’s work has been supported through artistic commissions from international choreographic performance festivals and organizations. The work is complimented by ongoing discourse and practice-based exchange with colleagues and students inside and outside academic environments.
