We went to the city centre last Friday to ask the question of how people identify themselves to the folk we met. At first we felt very avoided armed with a clip board on Briggate this is not surprising as people rush around conducting their daily business trying to avoid charity hustlers and surveyors. This was very different to the suburb areas of Leeds where even if people didn’t want to speak we got acknowledged. However after working on our approach and rewording our dialogue to can you help me stance (Ro’s heavily pregnant appearance helped with this) people started offering us their responses. In fact we got some quite philosophical debates occurring that bought up a whole myriad of pondering’s and questions, including: Does identity cause conflict both internally and for humanity? Will we ever can we ever truly know who we are? Identity isn’t fixed its fluid and changing.
Thanks to the people of Leeds for being so generous with your thoughts. We are now in the process of collating all this information into an installation at Union 105 ESA project space on Chapeltown Road this will available to view from Thursday 13th to Saturday 15th from 10am – 4pm. We have the exhibition launch Wed 12th 6-8pm free workshop Thusday 6-8pm and a free dance/ live art performance Friday 7-8pm
