memory field

you-me-we, remember
come to be part of the participatory performance
where you are invited to share, observe, and engage memories

Memory field is a participatory performance that is designed to invite participants to engage and explore memories at any level of their choice. It aims to activate layers of memories through human interactions and collective activities. 

Through the research process of this project, Tangmo dug back into her curiosity about the silenced history of the 6 October event or the Thammasat Massacre in 1976 in Thailand. Growing up in an authoritarian society such as Thailand, Tangmo finds it hard to locate a way to break the silence, not only about the particular incident but also other aspects and issues of life. Even if she wants to do so, something internally is trying to stop her. 

In this project, Tangmo is interested in using memory, both personal and collective, in a process of re-imagining and constructing a set of collective actions in an engaging setting. She juxtaposes a traumatic narrative with a memory card game as a way to open-up a conversation. She collaborated with several Thai artists to discuss self-censorship and how to overcome it over time in our own ways. The artists were asked to design patches that represent the points of view of how they feel about the issue of self-censorship and how each of them are dealing with it.

The performance wishes to touch upon the intersection of memories, together. It aims to invite participants to visit everyday life matters and see what possibilities/memories could be evoked.

Let yourself in-
To a field of memories
On the ground
Laying down
Looking up to the sky
Our future has been buried deep underground

take it in and let it sink in-you & me
