Chisara Agor is an inter-disciplinary artist, their work spans music, performance and visual art. Treading the lines between art and activism she endeavours to have a conversation with the public as well as create moments and spaces of self-reflection and healing. Their work intends to show alternative perspectives rooted in both reality and surrealism, whereby sound and music is developed to include expansive creative practices. Her most recent commission from Sound UK culminated in The Air We Live In, a multimedia project intending to raise awareness of air pollution and climate justice in the inner city and beyond. With the intention to reimagine ways of thinking and perceiving our reality, Chisara brings a philosophical approach to the way artists can communicate aesthetically, socially and politically in the modern world.
Nocturnal Sun/Dust is an inter-disciplinary performance piece that combines music, movement and visual art. The project will centre around themes of human history, spirituality and ecology. Beginning with exploring humanities relationship with the sun, set in a world where the nearest star is dying. The full piece would follow humanity reflecting on our inter-personal, ecological and internal relationships and conflicts in different movements or ‘moving sound paintings’
The project will be charged with live musicians and vocalists. Combining sci-fi, surrealism and conceptual art the piece aims to speak of humanhood, our relationship with ourselves and others, the environment and the legacy that will be left when we are gone. Old wisdom recovering and creating new ritual. Blending cosmology and Igbo cosmology while investigating the structure of the universe and the deeper immaterial connections we can make across space and time. Chisara's time in the residency will be used to develop a physical and musical language for the piece and explore it’s different tones and movements with musicians and movement artists.
