Charlotte Colgate tell us a little bit about your project for the CAMPBASELrevisited week?
Just Another Drop is the second piece in a series of works that are installation and performance based. It follows on from Another Drop in the Ocean, which was exhibited in March 2017 at the end of a residency in Kofu, Japan.
What can the CAMPvisitors expect from your project?
As Amanda Parish, I will perform four ten minute events over the period of two days. When there is no performance taking place the CAMPvisitors will be able to view the installation with a completed work from Japan (Another Drop in the Ocean), and the work in progress from Just Another Drop.
How will the interaction between your art projects and the visitors on the CAMPsite be? Do you have any expectations?
Compared to other projects where I have focused on immersing the viewer and encouraged physical interactions between the artwork and the audience, Just Another Drop will have more distance between the performance and the viewers. However, the main aim of the series is to initiate discussion about social issues across different cultural and geographical landscapes. I'm really interested to see what kind of points will be raised by the audience after the performances, and whether the topics discussed will be similar to those that were highlighted by the Japanese viewers that saw Another Drop in the Ocean,
Do you have any dreams for your stay in Basel?
Good weather! It's always nice to perform in the open air.
I can probably only dream of being able to understand Swiss-German. Living in Berlin I can speak reasonable German, but I'd like to pick up a few phrases of Baseldeutsch.
