About the Performances:
If nothing connects us but imagined sound is a performance and final element to Katie Revilla’s installation, spirit house, currently on view at the Block Museum’s Alsdorf Gallery. This performance that will take place on the drive outside the museum will function as the physical and symbolic retracing that represents the activation and closing of the spirit house. As a spirit house must always be ceremoniously closed before it is moved, the closure will be performed through Filipina Martial Artists and an all female and non-binary motorcycle group in Chicago to serve as an amplified, roaring vessel. Through these movements and conduction of energy, this work explores hybrid forms of ritual, protection, and conjuring— rooted in the search for imagined spaces of futurity and sonic citizenship to shift and amplify boundaries of objectification.
