A story of interaction between bodies and infrastructures.
In her work‘The Ferris wheel turns when the wind blows’, Sana introduces us to the private property of a historical figure: this particular plot of land is located in the Evin neighborhood that stretches from the northwest of Tehran to the foot of the Alborz mountains. Blurring the line between fact and fiction, she invites us to follow her drawing new narratives from this urban fabric.
Exploring the fusion of architectural reading, interpersonal storytelling and imaginary evocation of a public space, Sana Ghobbeh’s works comprise an interaction with particular architectural elements where a performer engages with the disrupted urban space and transforms it into an evolving context of engagement. While questioning the relationships between and within historical events, and about discovering small actions that can shake the stability of architectural elements that favour oppression, subtle counter-actions are developed through poetry, imagination and fabulation.
This performance is part of her long term research “Performing Spaces — an exploration on urban structures and their inner-narratives”.
