Akshuns 1981-1997 -Andre Stitt

A collection of performances from Andre Stitt from the period 1981-1997.

Performance akshuns located in a formative experience and a response to an encoded past embodied in the present that identifies with the marginalised and dispossessed. Social and ethnic cleansing becomes global cleansing via inquisition technology. The human body and by association, all life, becomes the unknowing and disempowered object of surveillance.

The akshuns seek to inhabit, embody and identify with processes of transition, the resolution of conflict; community and communion. These elements constitute an evocation of the individual and communal body on a journey towards redemption.
