Live Performance, October 2023, Dam Square, Amsterdam
"Invisible Extinction" brings together two artists from opposite ends of the globe: Hong Kong's Loretta Lau and Canadian Native American Performance Artist: The ‘Native American Bare-Wolf’, in a performance set on Amsterdam Dam Square. The location serves as a poignant symbol of cultural erasure and oppression. Lau, using scissors cuts away the Bare-Wolf's clothing, as a reflection of their shared experience of identity loss. Layers of discarded fabric serve as remnants of their heritage. Subsequently, Lau envelops the Bare-Wolf in transparent plastic, illustrating the suffocating restrictions faced by both communities. The Bare-Wolf's immobility serves as a powerful symbol of the loss of freedom. Nevertheless, his strained breath conveys resilience, echoing the shared experiences of identity erosion and constrained freedom.
