Visiting artist Samson Cheung, from Hong Kong, has been in residence at ESS for several weeks, inaugurating the new Wavefront international artist exchange program with soundpocket. In his performance As I have listened / Please chat with me, Samson invites the audience to respond, interact, and improvise with the evolving contents of his Chicago journey, using objects, texts, and simple instructions based on his experiences. This reflects his change of mind from a passive to an active way of adapting to a new place, and creates yet another new layer of his (shared) memories in the US.
Reception at 6pm;
performance at 7pm
For their collaboration, Boris Hauf and Keefe Jackson considered the materials and elements in the Fern Room—soil, metal, glass and sunlight—in parallel to the materials and elements of the saxophones and clarinets they play—wood, metal, plastic and breath.
