The Palimpsest Project 1.3 in Toronto

A performance/lecture in defense of (re)appearance by re[public] in/decency, as part of the 2012 Free Fall Festival.

“Speed is perceived in two ways…as a causing factor of changes of culture and civilization and as an issue of (de)urbanization, which prepare the ground for new spatial objects and spaces.” -Paul Virilio, Speed and Politics

The historical palimpsest is a manuscript on parchment which has been effaced to make room for later writing, but of which antecedent traces remain.

re[public] in/decency invites you to experience THE PALIMPSEST PROJECT 1.3, a time-based performance/lecture with Coman Poon (Toronto) and Erica Mott (Chicago) that examines how reified boundaries and palimpsested landscapes affect our embodied sense of self and place.

WHERE: gallerywest, 1172 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M6J 1J5

WHEN: Sunday, March 24, 2012 @ 3pm
