About the project- Sinéad O'Donnell
When I meet artists working in performance art I am always intrigued to ask how did they come to that art form? How did they begin making performance art? The answers can be: through fine art; meeting artists; witnessing live performances; music; dance; theatre; or workshops. When I viewed performances by Ayab and Pugh, I was aware that I was experiencing two artists making work from different musical backgrounds. Pugh from an experimental and contemporary music background, with years of training in traditional music, and Ayab an experimental musical background. I knew where they were both arriving from and it made me feel more connected to their performance processes and methodologies. I proposed to Pugh & Ayab a project about collaborative chemistries and what happens when artists move together into a shared creative space. 

How do we begin?

Performing Identity is a project that brings together the artists for the first time in a collaborative context. The artists are based in two very different parts of the world: Pugh in Belfast; and Ayab in Singapore. It is obvious that the two come from very different cultures, but the catalyst for the collaboration was O’Donnell’s belief that collaboration both fuels and helps us understand culture.

Arif Ayab & Caroline Pugh will work at PS² in the format of a residency for a duration of two weeks. Their collaborative partnership began through social networks and internet interfaces. Both artists then worked together at a two week residency at The Guesthouse, Cork from the 1- 14 May 2015. This process is now continued and further developed.
