Location: Hoxton Arches
Studio 1. I miss you so much! is the first solo performance installation of choreographer and performance artist Valerie Tameu in the UK, marking a significant step in her practice.
Commissioned by SPAZIO GRIOT and ICI London, and curated by Johanne Affricot, Studio 1. I miss you so much! continues Tameu’s research on memory, and builds on her stage performance Dove hanno tremato le placche (Where the Plates trembled, 2023), which Tameu developed at her residency at Fondazione Polo del ‘900 and SPAZIO GRIOT. The project was partly inspired by 1999, a poem she wrote for the poetry collection Rage & Desire (SPAZIO GRIOT, British Council, 2022).
The artist continues her exploration of the theme of memory in 1980s Turin, a working-class city and site of immigration. In her multi-layered narrative, she interrogates the concept of the event and the traces it leaves behind. With moving images, photographs, texts, clothes, and props, Studio 1. I miss you so much! renders Tameu’s idea of ephemerality, memory, archive as circulatory forms of representation, transferring their content from one medium to another in an attempt to find one own’s position in a collective history.
Studio 1. I Miss You So Much! will take place on the 1st of December, 4-9PM at our pop-up space in London, Hoxton Arches
(Arch 402, Cremer Street London E2 8HD).
