Sana Ghob­beh is an Ira­ni­an-born artist and art researcher living in Brus­sels. In her per­for­man­ces she fuses archi­tec­tu­ral rea­ding, inter­per­so­nal sto­ry­tel­ling, and ima­gi­na­ti­on spar­ked by being pre­sent in spe­ci­fic public spa­ces. To ima­gi­ne your own body the­re, in that pla­ce, explo­ring the rela­ti­ons­hip bet­ween his­to­ri­cal events, eve­ry­day acti­ons, and a body­’s posi­ti­on within its sur­roun­dings. Can fabu­la­ti­on and poe­try help us dis­co­ver small coun­ter­ac­ti­ons, subt­le gestu­res that might sha­ke the sta­bi­li­ty of archi­tec­tu­ral ele­ments that favour oppressi­on?

This per­for­man­ce is part of the artis­t’s long term research Per­for­ming Spa­ces — an explo­ra­ti­on on urban struc­tu­res and their inner-narratives.
