Performance In pieces and parts by Heidi Voet
In pieces and parts, a performance conceived by the Taipei-based Belgian artist Heidi Voet will take place at CHAT on March 28. About 70 performers across gender and physique will wear Voet’s costumes, which are reproduced from the artist’s entire wardrobe. We choose our clothes to construct our identity, adapting ourselves to the conventions defined by social norms. Reconfiguring the codes that establish our behavior and roles, Heidi Voet’s performance ‘In pieces and parts’ deconstructs the social function our attire has, and questions positions and histories that are intertwined within.
